FFA: Growing opportunity

HackThis is National FFA Week, Kayla Hack is Wisconsin State FFA president this year and like so many members, she did not grow up on a farm. She was first exposed to the organization in junior high and it built from there. She says while production agriculture remains a very important part of the program, agri-science is the area that appeals to so many non-farm students. “By 2020, we are going to have to fill over 132,000 jobs in the agriculture industry,” says Hack and that is what the program is built to do.
