Kickapoo FFA Attends Wisconsin Farm Bureau Forum

Kickapoo FFA members were among the nearly 200 high school students who attended the recent Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s FFA Farm Forum in Wisconsin Rapids.

During the 2-day event, FFA members attended workshops that covered topics including post-high school agricultural opportunities, social media, agriculture advocacy and leadership.

Jim Holte, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President, said that the Farm Bureau is proud to host this annual event with the FFA to help grow the next crop of agricultural leaders in Wisconsin. Joining Holte as keynote speakers at the event were Jonathan Eckelberg, digital content specialist at the Wisconsin Department of Tourism and Ethan Giebel, director of education at Cooperative Network.

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation sponsors the FFA Farm Forum in cooperation with the Wisconsin Association of FFA. This year’s FFA Farm Forum marks the 44th year the Farm Bureau sponsored the event for Wisconsin youth.
