FFA Names 40 Individuals as the 2008 New Century Farmers

The National FFA Organization has selected 40 outstanding young people to participate in the 2008 New Century Farmer Program. This exclusive, highly competitive program develops young men and women who are committed to pursing a career in production agriculture. The New Century Farmer Program is sponsored by Pioneer Hi-Bred a DuPont business; Rabo Agrifinance; and Successful Farming as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

From Arizona to the Atlantic coastline in Virginia, participants representing 21 states will take part in an intensive five-day seminar in July 28 through August 1 in Johnston, Iowa at the Global headquarters of Pioneer Hi-Bred. They will learn from each other and industry experts during a series of workshops and sessions, on topics ranging from the global marketplace to farm financing, demographic trends to risk management. The New Century Farmers will hear from motivating and informative keynote speakers who will educate them on the risks and rewards involved with agriculture production. In addition to classroom learning, students will be exposed to the latest developments in agricultural technology, field tours, sessions on personal and professional development and team building.

The program is designed to provide participants with valuable learning that they will take home and apply to their own farming operations, as well as resources and a network of friends that they can draw upon throughout their careers.
