Case IH is a proud supporter of the National FFA Foundation. Their undertaking of helping students prepare to be the next generation of agriculture leaders goes hand-in-hand with our mission to help farmers “Be Ready” for the opportunities and challenges facing agriculture.
During the recent National FFA Convention, we asked students to use Twitter to send us their thoughts on what they are doing to Be Ready for the future of farming. We promised that one respondent would receive a new Apple iPad 2 as part of the contest.
Our lucky winner is Elisa Sagehorn who grew up on a row crop and cattle farm near Holyoke, Colo. She currently is student at Colorado State University (CSU) majoring in agricultural education. She is the daughter of Keith and Diane Sagehorn.
Elisa tweeted “I will be ready through bringing ag education to elementary schools.” She already has served in agriculture advocacy roles, including presiding as a past state FFA officer, interning for the Colorado Farm Bureau and currently chairing the CSU College of Agriculture ambassador program.
If you were in Decatur for the Farm Progress Show, you probably noted the Case IH presence. We admit it – Case IH was hard to miss. But if you weren’t able to join us we invite you to take a look at the video recap of opening day.
We also hope nobody missed a chance to tweet their response to the question, “What does Efficient Power mean to me?” Here’s how it worked: Everyone was invited to describe what Efficient Power meant to them personally. There weren’t many rules- you had to include a #EfficientPower hashtag to identify your tweet, and of course you had to observe the Twitter 140-character limit. Other than that, the topic was wide open.
The future leaders of production agriculture met in Des Moines, Iowa, the last week in July for the National FFA Organization New Century Farmer Conference. Forty-nine young people from across the U.S. participated in personal and professional development workshops, while networking with agriculture industry professionals.
In our quest to prepare this new generation of farmers “Be Ready” and embrace agriculture’s challenges and opportunities, Case IH helped sponsor the event. We hosted a dinner for the participants at the Case IH Training Center in Nevada, Iowa, and presented on new and technologies in farm machinery.
