Technical – Farmland presented a $ 100,000 check to the National FFA on Friday at the Johnson County Show in Texan.
Farm Land Matt Riggins said the county’s fair setting is the perfect foundation for a Heartland tour that began in June with about 40 stops in Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska.
Riggins said farmland and the FFA share many values to train and encourage the next generation of leaders.
“The reality is that there are many places in the United States that do not have a FFA chapter. It really takes me back to the main mission here: awareness and education and the mission is to let people know that it has grown and improved. It is not uncommon to tell people how to show a pig at a county fair. Not so much how John Drew tractor starts, it’s more about how we get kids into farming.
According to Seward Emma Kus, the mission will reach out to students who do not have a cultural background in agriculture. He said the donation of farmland would support FFA’s “True Blue” programs and “I believe in the future of the AG”.
Cous: “I wasn’t in farming until I was in my first year of high school.
“I met FFA and found a way and a career and now I go to college to study gardening.
According to FFA Regional Director CCP Scala, the donation will help prepare young people for the challenges of feeding the growing population.
Uska Scala: “The National FFA will create the next generation of leaders to change the world. That will be in agriculture, trade, technology, science and the arts. We can’t do this without partners like Farmland. ”
The farm food truck was also parked on BLT sandwiches displaying the company’s well-known bacon.
