State Representative Casey Kozlowski (R-Pierpont) has announced that Speaker of the Ohio House William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) appointed Farmdale resident Dominic Marchese to serve on the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board. Marchese is the owner of Manna Farms and also raises beef cattle, chickens and hay.

“Mr. Marchese will be a good representative of family farmers while serving on the Livestock Care Standards Board,” Rep. Kozlowski said. “As the owner and operator of a local farm for nearly four decades, he has the experience necessary to help maintain strong family farms and healthy, happy livestock.”

The Livestock Care Standards Board is charged with conducting a review of the rules governing the care and well-being of livestock, with special consideration for biosecurity, the prevention of disease, animal morbidity and mortality data, food safety practices, the protection of local, affordable food supplies for consumers, veterinary medical practices, ethical standards established by the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the best management practices for the care of livestock.
