The chapter gave presentations on animal health at the local livestock auction market and an insurance meeting for farmers and ranchers. The students also set up displays at local veterinary clinics and a grain elevator. In addition to providing information on animal health, local agricultural leaders also had a chance to see the future of agriculture in action.
“I was proud and pleased to see how they handled themselves in front of a group,” says Ray Erbele, vice president of the Napoleon Livestock Auction and former FFA adviser. “All of the people in the community are very proud that the students are so dedicated. We had a ring full of producers, and I know they got a lot of interaction and reaction from the people there. It created an avenue to allow the people and our customers to know how important FFA is and how important it is that we have young people that become actively involved in agriculture and specifically animal agriculture.”
