Minnesota Ag Organizations Salute FFAPublished by on
(St. Paul, Minn.) -- Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) salutes the excellent work of the FFA during their National FFA week February 15-22, 2014.
“The FFA does such great work in fostering the skills necessary for our youth to excel and succeed,” said Doug Peterson, Minnesota Farmers Union President. “The agriculture sector is strong in good part because FFA provides the tools needed for personal growth and success in our future farm generations. We thank and salute FFA for their wonderful work in keeping not only the agriculture sector strong, but our rural and urban communities as well.”
“The challenge of farming today and for raising food for a growing nation and a hungry world will be met by our youth. It will take knowledge and hard work and we at Farmers Union believe the students of FFA will meet the demands as agriculture evolves in the 21st century,” Peterson added.

In addition, the Minnesota Farm Bureau (MFB) salutes FFA during National FFA Week, February 16-22. This week is a great reminder of the many reasons why Farm Bureau maintains such strong support for the FFA program.
Farm Bureau invests in FFA throughout the year because Farm Bureau sees future farmers, future agricultural leaders and future Farm Bureau members involved in this organization. County Farm Bureaus and Farm Bureau leaders also support FFA programs by sponsoring local FFA activities or individuals, jointly hosting events such as safety camps and serve as a driving force to maintain FFA programs in local school districts.
Farm Bureau congratulates FFA in Minnesota and all of the youth and leaders who make FFA such an impressive organization. Farm Bureau is proud to be a strong supporter of FFA.
