More than 225 high school juniors from across Wisconsin attended Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s FFA Farm Forum in Wisconsin Rapids, February 15-16.
“This event is a great partnership between Wisconsin Farm Bureau and Wisconsin FFA,” said WFBF President Jim Holte. “Young ag leaders who attend this event participate in professional development activities, explore ag careers and learn about current issues facing agriculture while networking with their peers and Farm Bureau staff.”
During the two-day event at Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids, FFA members attended workshops on post-secondary agricultural opportunities, social media, agricultural advocacy and leadership.
Joining WFBF President Holte as keynote speakers at the event were Alison Wedig, marketing specialist for Culver Franchising System, LLC and Chris Pollack, co-owner of Pollack-Vu Dairy.
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation sponsors FFA Farm Forum in cooperation with the Wisconsin Association of FFA. This year’s FFA Farm Forum marks the 47th time the event has been hosted for Wisconsin youth.
