Montana State University to Host Hundreds of Students for John Deere Ag Expo
According to a recent news release, Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana will host hundreds of students Nov. 14-16 for the John Deere Ag Expo, where they will compete in contests and have an opportunity to learn about Montana agriculture.
The three-day event will welcome FFA and 4-H students from Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and North Dakota, who will be judged in contest categories ranging from agricultural communications, livestock judging, agriculture sales, and extemporaneous speaking, according to the release.
In addition to the contests, which will prepare students for upcoming State Conventions and the overall year ahead, students will be given a variety of opportunities to learn about agriculture in Montana. They will also be able to meet with members of the MSU faculty about educational programs and future careers in agriculture.
Jamie Edmundson, executive director for the Montana FFA, said about 2012’s show in a Prairie Star article, “John Deere came on board with this event because they realize the leadership quality and overall impact of the FFA program and what that means for the ag industry and for their industry.”
