The West Central FFA Ag Issues Team recently traveled to Pierre where they delivered their Ag Issues presentation entitled “The Dakota Access Pipeline: Good or Evil?” The team was invited to present before both the House and Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committees. Each appearance was followed by questions and comments from members of the committees. Members of both the House and Senate committees discussed the importance of advocacy in agriculture with the team and commended them on their research and performance. The Ag Issues team earned a berth to the National Ag Issues Career Development Event by winning the state title in December. The national competition will take place during the 90th National FFA Convention this October in Indianapolis, IN.
