The Kentucky Corn Growers Association has created a way for young Americans who want to become involved in the agricultural industry to learn about the craft, as they promoted the farming occupation at the National Farm Machinery Show, according for AgWired.
The news source reported that the organization advocated for agriculture against the backdrop of used John Deere tractors and other farm equipment.
"I wanted to do something different, something that would really get farmers thinking about how they can advocate for agriculture," Jennifer Elwell, Kentucky Corn Growers Association communications director, told AgWired. "At the show, we chatted with growers about the topics that are most important to consumers such as food safety, environmental concerns and animal welfare."
Elwell came up with a list of 10 ways to advocate for agriculture, as it included a range of ways that people who take pride in their work and the farming profession can spread this positive sentiment to the next generation.
The National Farm Machinery Show featured events like the Championship Tractor Pull, but also included a variety of speakers and exhibitions for attendees, according to the event's website.
