Agriculture is constantly evolving, and we want to meet the challenges of a changing world. Continual education and thirst for knowledge drives our organization and our members.
Active Leadership

This country needs people willing to lead and give direction. We have many skills from past experiences that can be applied in new situations. Active leadership means taking advantage of opportunities and using our skills for the betterment of all we are involved in.
