Ohio’s voter-approved Livestock Care Standards Board has rolled out a new interactive website.
The board's site, ohiolivestockcarestandardsboard.gov, has meeting notices, details on past meetings, along with updates and contact information. Visitors also have a chance to offer direct comments to the board members.
