Iowa FFA Association receives $5, donation from Farmland

On June 30, Farmland made a $5, donation to the Iowa FFA Association as recognition for the organization’s positive impact in communities throughout the state. The gift was part of the Honoring the Heartland Tour, an initiative launched by Farmland in June that aims to support the next generation of farmers and show appreciation for the honest work and tireless commitment in Midwest farming communities, agriculture industries, and retail establishments.

The week mission will honor the unsung heroes of the agriculture food chain and highlight the key role the heartland plays by delivering sack lunches and donating money to support the future of farming. The Farmland Honoring the Heartland Tour food truck will complete two to three stops per week in neighborhoods across the Midwest. Additionally, Farmland will make donations to the National FFA Organization and state-level FFA associations during the tour to aid them in their mission to grow leaders, build communities, and strengthen agriculture at the local, state, and national levels.

The $5, donation will go towards the Iowa FFA Association’s mission to develop premier leadership, personal growth, and career success in its more than 16, members throughout the state. With 1 in 5 Iowans directly employed in agriculture, organizations like the Iowa FFA Association are essential in creating and developing the next generation of ag leaders and ensuring a bright future for the industry.

“Farmland is humbled to share this donation with the Iowa FFA Association so they can continue to be a prominent influence in the agricultural sphere by offering valuable real-world information and opportunities to its student and alumni chapters,” Erin Thacker, brand manager for Farmland at Smithfield Foods, said. “Farmland is committed to supporting localized farming in America’s heartland to provide customers with high-quality, flavorful products they can trust and feel good about. The donation today honors the brand’s appreciation for the crucial role our partners in this industry play for not only our products, but our nation’s food supply.”

“We are thankful for Farmland&#;s ongoing support of the National and State-level FFA Organization&#;s missions,&#; Molly Ball, chief marketing officer for the National FFA Organization and president of the National FFA Foundation, said. &#;We&#;re happy to join in honoring the unsung heroes of farming and agriculture, many of whom are former FFA members.&#;

The Farmland food truck also provided meals to farmer leaders and employees of the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) as part of the donation event at the FFA Enrichment Center in Ankeny. A strong supporter of the Iowa FFA Association, the ISA was recognized for delivering opportunities and results for the state’s 37, soybean farmers by building demand for Iowa soybeans, enhancing production and conservation through the Research Center for Farming Innovation, and providing information in a timely manner to help farmers increase their productivity and profitability.

Maquoketa chapter reflects record participation in the Iowa FFA Association

MAQUOKETA, Iowa — Student participation in the Iowa FFA Association is at an all time high and Maquoketa High School reflects that with membership more than tripling in the last year.

"With world population projections of over $9 billion by 2050, demand for food, fiber, and energy will continue to grow and thus, so will opportunities in agriculture. There is high demand for students to enter the work force that have a combination of technical knowledge learned through STEM-based Ag Education and leadership development learned through FFA involvement," said Scott Johnson, Executive Director of the Iowa FFA Association.

For the 2017-2018 school year the Iowa FFA Association reported record membership: 15,749 students. As of December 27, 2018 there were 14,452 members.

"It is common to add 1,200 - 1,500 members during the spring semester. Thus we are on pace to tie or surpass last year's record membership," said Johnson.

During the 2017-2018 school year, Maquoketa High School had 60 students in FFA. Currently, there are 203 students in FFA, according to data from the Iowa FFA Association.

Maquoketa High School is the oldest active FFA chapter in Iowa, chartered in 1928.  Agriculture Education teacher, Matt Lansing says there are two main reasons for the increase in membership.

"We went affiliation dues, which covers everyone," said Lansing, who is in his 2nd year at Maquoketa High School.

Lansing says the number one thing he heard last year was that students could not afford the $25 membership fee. Now the FFA Chapter covers a lump sum, $3,000 affiliation due.

"That’s one. Number two. We also have kind of encompassed Industrial Tech because it’s so hard to find industrial tech teachers," said Lansing.

Lansing says Maquoketa High School was calling for the position since October, 2017. In May, 2018 the call switched to a second Agriculture Education teacher to fill the teaching job that still allowed students hands on learning opportunities.

After no more than five minutes of students taking their seats in his classroom, Lansing ensures all his students have safety glasses and instructs them to head to the shop, where his 'small engines' agriculture class will work for the remainder of the period.

In the shop, students grab their tools and crank away on engines comparable to the size you might see on a push lawn-mower. Not necessarily what one might picture when they think of an agriculture class.

"Very much so I would disagree a little bit," said Lansing, "If I'm on the farm or an ag industry, like if I work at the local co-op, I have to be able to use my hands and be mechanically inclined to repair things," said Lansing.

He says the class teaches students confidence and problem solving. Students might not be able to mess up on an engine at home, but in Lansing's 'small engine' class, it's all part of the learning process.

"It's more interactive, hands-on learning and a lot less paperwork," said Brendon Koch, a junior who says he has always taken Ag classes throughout high school and plans to go into diesel mechanics when he graduates.

"Northeast Iowa Community College is where I want to go - they have a really good John Deere program," said Koch.

Even with 203 students in FFA, Lansing says he wants to see more students join the program. His goal is to have half the school involved.

"When I grew up they said run away from agriculture, go do anything else. Now it’s completely the opposite. Get involved in it. There are great paying jobs there are great opportunities there are great career paths. So that’s where my passion comes from I guess," said Lansing.

His classroom is a renovated bus barn. The shop where the students work is the old welding shop.

With the addition of a second Ag teacher, and plans to expand the courses offered within the Ag department, the Maquoketa FFA Chapter wants to raise money to build a brand new Ag learning center.

Its alumni chapter is working to raise money for the new building.

"There’s a lot of people in the community, not just parents that see the benefit to the Ag education program and want to help these kids succeed," said Skott Gent, President of the Maquoketa FFA Alumni Chapter.

He says he expects the new building to cost roughly $1 million - $1.2 million. Of that about $750,000 has been committed by the school and community donors. Construction will not start until the project is fully funded.

"We know that a lot of these kids aren’t destined for a 4-year college career and so if we can have them career ready coming out of high school it’s just going to make them all the more successful," said Gent. "We very much appreciate the community’s support in this project, the school is doing everything they can to support it financially."

Iowa Farm Bureau Federation pledges $, to Iowa FFA Foundation

The commitment to developing future leaders in the agriculture industry is the cornerstone of both the Iowa FFA Foundation and the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation. As part of that shared goal, both organizations are pleased to announce that the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation is now an annual $, donor to the Iowa FFA Foundation and its partner organizations—the Iowa FFA Association, Iowa FFA Alumni Association, Iowa Association of Agricultural Educators (IAAE) and the Iowa chapter of the Postsecondary Agricultural Student Organization (PAS).

As a “Sapphire” level donor, the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) is among the most generous contributors to the FFA programs and a key supporter in sustaining key Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) directives.  “We are proud to support such a fine organization that each year leads so many Iowa youth on a path of success.  We share the goal of helping rural Iowa youth discover and reach their full potential, and part of that picture is understanding the opportunities that agriculture has for all Iowans.  Agriculture is the cutting edge of innovation and technology and through our mutual goals of supporting STEM initiatives, the sky is the limit for Iowa youth,” says IFBF President and former FFA member, Craig Hill. 

Support from IFBF has been crucial in enabling the foundation to maintain several key youth leadership development events, such as the Iowa FFA Legislative Symposium, the Agricultural Discussion Meet Career Development Event, the Iowa FFA Academic Achievement Award sponsorship, the Iowa FFA State Leadership Conference and the PAS Spring Leadership Conference.

“The generous support of IFBF also helps ensure key fundraising events continue, including the annual charity golf tournament and the Black Ties, Blue Jackets Gala.  We know IFBF’s multi-year pledge is another manifestation of their longtime emphasis on STEM education. Thus, thanks to IFBF’s commitment, we are able to realize the implementation of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council grants supporting the Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE) program. Through this gift, thousands of students across Iowa have new opportunities for a future in agriculture,” says Iowa FFA Foundation Executive Director Joshua Remington.

Iowa FFA Today September: CDE Results \u0026 SLCDO

Her panties dangled just above the knees, and a mixture of her heat and the sperm of a stranger flowed down the inner thigh. The story is based. On real events. I have one friend, I have known him since my student days. After graduation, we started working together in the same clinic.

Similar news:

I was not ugly, I have a good figure. and I did the blow job twice already, the boys did not complain, in general, it really hurt me. And then one weekend, when basically all students go to their parents, I stayed in the hostel. Going up the stairs, I saw Victor, he was standing on the back stairs drinking beer, smoking.
