Farm Credit Services Provides FFA Student Handbooks
This year acknowledges the 44th year that the three independent Farm Credit Services associations in North Dakota have donated FFA Handbooks to agricultural students
in area schools.
This year, over one hundred high school agriculture education programs in North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin will receive over 3,800 of the student handbooks for the
start of the 2020/2021 school year donated by the Farm Credit Services Associations in North Dakota.
For over four decades more than 85,500 of the books have been presented to FFA-first year 'greenhands' to be used throughout the four-year FFA program.
“Farm Credit Services is very proud of its long-standing tradition to provide handbooks for incoming FFA students as they begin their FFA programs this fall.'" says Teresa Kjellberg,
Director of Marketing with Farm Credit Services of North Dakota. “Farm Credit maintains a strong commitment to support youth in our rural communities and help grow the next
generation,” she adds.
Farm Credit Services is committed to helping the FFA provide excellence in the teaching and learning of agriculture and its activities in science, technology, production, processing, and
related agribusiness activities as well as understand the vital and necessary role of the agricultural industry. Farm Credit Services is proud to support today’s youth who may become
tomorrow’s agricultural producers and leaders.
