Will the 540,000 members of the FFA be the farmers of the future? According to Dwight Armstrong from the FFA, yes they will.
“The FFA is more than just farming and ranching”, said Armstrong. There are over 300 careers available in agriculture and the FFA has the largest talent pool available in the industry. They have the system, scale and reach to meet the workforce needs of agriculture.
So what does agriculture need? It needs the best and brightest; not the leftovers, young people who are problem solvers, leaders, innovators and good stewards of the environment.
