Case IH wishes to congratulate the 50 young men and women selected to participate in the National FFA’s 2011 New Century Farmer Program, an exclusive and highly competitive program to prepare young people for careers in production agriculture. The National FFA Organization announced the 2011 winners last week.
Case IH is committed to helping this new generation of farmers “Be Ready” and embrace agriculture’s challenges and opportunities. One way Case IH is demonstrating our commitment to preparing future generations of farmers is by sponsoring the National FFA’s New Century Farmer Conference. This intensive, week-long event held in Des Moines, Iowa, nurtures the winning youths’ entrepreneurial spirit and professional growth. Participants have the opportunity to learn from industry experts, including some of our Case IH team, while increasing their practical knowledge, global perspective, and personal growth.
As a sponsor, Case IH will host a dinner for the participants at the Case IH Training Center in Nevada, Iowa, and offer a session on new and emerging farm machinery at Case IH as part of the conference schedule. Other conference sponsors include: Pioneer, Rabo AgriFinance, and CSX Corporation, with media partner Successful Farming as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
