The West Central FFA Ag Issues Team recently traveled to Pierre where they delivered their Ag Issues presentation entitled “Is Organic Really Better”? 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 also had the opportunity to meet Secretary of Agriculture Lucas Lentsch. The Secretary 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 88th National FFA Convention this October in Louisville, KY
