46 current and former state FFA officers visited California to learn about the wide variety of agriculture the state has to offer.
Stops included the largest U.S. producer of caviar, a fourth-generation ranch practicing responsible carbon farming, and many others.
They also visited with California’s Secretary of Agriculture, Karen Ross, the vice-chair of California’s Water Board, and the vice president of state government affairs from Western Growers.
During the second week of the tour, the FFA members visited berry farms, nurseries, a horse ranch, and a feedlot.
The young people spoke with a wide variety of agricultural experts on the trip and learned about practices they could take home to their communities.
