Farm Shadow Program to focus on Agricultural Career Exploration
Our Farm Shadow Program is a wonderful opportunity for students to gain valuable insight into potential agriculture careers. Through partnerships with our Farm Bureau professional members working within the ag industry, we hope to provide high school students with an understanding of how their coursework connects to the variety of jobs in our field so they will come away with a better understanding of the skills needed to be successful. We want our area’s enthusiastic, bright minds to seek agricultural careers through this program.
For further information, contact Katrina at [email protected]. We welcome inquiries from high school educators to learn more about ag careers and from ag-related business professionals who may want to host or speak at a farm shadow event.
