FFA membership is growing in Wisconsin

More young people from on and off the farm are showing an interest in FFA. 

Casey Denk is the Wisconsin State FFA President.  Denk says Wisconsin FFA is seeing a big advancement in middle school membership. “We had to slow down during COVID, but now we’re all back in a full-swing year, and we’re seeing membership in middle school really amp up, so we’re very, very excited and we’re thinking we’re going to have high numbers again this year for our FFA membership.”

Denk says last year’s FFA membership was a record 23,190 members, and the goal this year is 25,001.  She tells Brownfield there’s more student interest, and there are still some schools looking for agriculture instructors. “If anyone’s looking for an ag education job, there’s definitely places out there and the students definitely appreciate those positions when they’re filled because the opportunities that you can give your students are just unmatchable.”

Denk says FFA members have many hands-on projects including showing and judging dairy cattle and judging dairy products here at World Dairy Expo.
