FFA Spring Thaw
Agricenter's FFA programs are designed to introduce our youth to the many job opportunities that are available for prospective agricultural employees. They rotate stations provided by our company partners such as 901 Drones, National Weather Service, AgSmarts, Ducks and Archer Daniel Midland just to name a few.
Only 10% of agricultural jobs are farm related jobs. There were 17 Million jobs in 2013 in agricultural related fields.
Our Spring Thaw event is focused on the technical solutions being used in the field. Our company partners speak about precision planters, monitoring the growth of the crop via drones and computers to the sales of the crops and utilization of conservation and weather that impact the end results.
Keep watch on our calendar for our next Spring event.
