THE FFA VISION
THE FFA VISION
Students whose lives are impacted by FFA and agricultural education will achieve academic and personal growth, strengthen American agriculture and provide leadership to build healthy local communities, a strong nation and a sustainable world.
Missouri FFA is 25,920 members strong —and growing! FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet the challenges of feeding a growing population by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways through their experiences in agricultural education. Today’s FFA members are future biologists, chemists, veterinarians, engineers and entrepreneurs! Thanks for helping us pave the way to being tomorrow’s leaders.

The program will help youth develop strong relationships with both pork producers and allied industry members. It is an opportunity to learn about pork production and the industry and to improve communication and leadership skills.
