Nearly 200 high school juniors from across Wisconsin attended Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s FFA Farm Forum in Wisconsin Rapids, February 20-21.
“The Wisconsin Farm Bureau takes pride in hosting this special event with the FFA to help grow our next crop of agricultural leaders,” said Jim Holte, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President.
During the two-day event at Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids, FFA members attended workshops that covered topics including post-high school agricultural opportunities, social media, advocating for agriculture, leadership and more.
Keynote speakers at the forum included Jim Holte, Wisconsin Farm Bureau President; Kaitlyn Riley, WQOW multimedia journalist and Gretchen Kamps, beef farmer and Wisconsin Farm Bureau District 3 Coordinator.
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation sponsored the FFA Farm Forum in cooperation with the Wisconsin Association of FFA. This year’s FFA Farm Forum marks the 43rd year the Farm Bureau family of affiliates has sponsored the event for Wisconsin youth.
