The Fergus Falls office of AgCountry Farm Credit Services has presented fourteen High School FFA chapters with their supply of FFA handbooks for the school year.
The handbooks go to FFA “greenhands,” first-year students in the agricultural education curriculum. AgCountry Farm Credit Services in Fergus Falls delivered a total of 390 handbooks and 315 official manuals to FFA ag instructions in New York Mills, Eagle Valley, Menahga, Sebeka, Verndale, Bertha, Staples-Motley, Fergus Falls Kennedy Secondary School, Battle Lake, Pelican Rapids, Parkers Prairie, Perham, Wadena and Browerville.
This is the 36th year that Farm Credit Services has provided FFA handbooks to area schools. Farm Credit Services has provided funding for the FFA Handbook since its inception in 1977, sponsoring the mission of the National FFA Organization which is to promote premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agriculture education.
These High Schools were among over 80 schools in North Dakota and northwest Minnesota to receive over 2,600 handbooks from the Farm Credit Services Associations in North Dakota this year.
