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.

For many students, going to the zoo for a school function is normally a field trip. However, for students at Blue Springs South and Blue Springs High School, they have the unique opportunity to receive a behind the scenes look at the Kansas City Zoo in Missouri. The FFA advisors, Craig Zwahlen and Morgan Payton, have worked with the zoo for the past four years to provide their students with an opportunity of a lifetime.
MFA Incorporated has partnered with State Technical College of Missouri in Linn, to offer a new Custom Applicator Program. The program is designed to attract mechanically inclined guys and gals from our farming communities who want to pursue careers within the agriculture industry.

Kids feeding kids is the focus of the 2019 Drive to Feed Kids; which kicks off today. Missouri agriculture is banding together once again to address the alarming reality that one in five Missouri children regularly face hunger. The goal of this collaboration is to raise funds to provide food for hungry Missouri children and stand in the gap for those children who face food insecurity.
