What a fantstic group of kids! We had the priviledge of being a tour stop for the Missouri Agribusiness Academy class of 2016! #MAbA2016
Since 1988, the Missouri Agribusiness Academy has awarded more than 800 academy memberships through a competitive application and interview process. To be eligible for the Agribusiness Academy, students must come from a farming family or be an active member of the National FFA Organization or 4-H. The 2016 Academy will tour agribusinesses, explore educational opportunities and meet with agricultural leaders in the Springfield area June 6 – 10. The students will end their week with a graduation ceremony at the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City.
Agriculture has a tremendous impact on our nation’s economy, and Missouri is at the heart of this industry. It is important that young people carry on the tradition and heritage of those who have made this state the agricultural leader it is today. (Source: MO Department of Agriculture)
