Cargill To Support FFA Programs

Spencer, IA: Minnesota-based Cargill has pledged more than half-a-million dollars to support several National FFA programs and initiatives.

Cargill will gift $160,000 to support “Blast Off,” an annual training conference for newly-elected state FFA officers that helps them master public speaking and improve management skills.

Cargill also pledged $150,000 to support the national FFA’s Ag Career Network, an online portal that FFA members use to track educational accomplishments, build career portfolios and apply for jobs.

Cargill has also committed financial support for the Ag Career Network over the next two years.
