Agriculture Appreciation Breakfast
Trisha Campbell, Kentucky Farm Bureau’s 2019 Discussion Meet Winner, was the featured speaker at the Agriculture Appreciation Breakfast Feb 6th at the Logan County Extension Office. She explained the Kentucky Farm Bureau’s Discussion Meet process as well as her experience participating in the American Farm Bureau’s Discussion Meet contest in Austin, TX this past January. The topic of this year’s discussion was the future impact of cell-based meat technologies on production agriculture.
Mrs. Campbell also pointed out how beneficial vocational agriculture classes and FFA are to high school students. The intern program that allows students to work for businesses as a part of their education gives the students a great head start for their future. The future for careers in agriculture is very good. Her remarks were well received by the audience and she was given a standing ovation.
