The Area VII Future Farmers of America officers met Aug. 12 at the Missouri State Fair, volunteering to clean up buildings and teach youth about Missouri’s agriculture.
Officers started out the day in the FFA building cleaning up and taking care of the plants inside.
The group later traveled over to the agriculture building to help out with the Missouri Department of Agriculture booth.
The purpose of the booth was to engage and interest kids about agriculture through fun learning experiences like milking a cow, watching educational videos and a scavenger hunt.
FFA officers said they were glad to see a younger generation so enthused about the rural lifestyle and the countless opportunities offered through the agriculture industry.
