On a recent visit to a family dairy operation in eastern Wisconsin, I was treated to a very special event. The Nischke Farms in Pulaski WI., hosted the local FFA (Future Farmers of America) annual ‘Kids on the Farm’ day. Three bus-loads of youngsters from area grade schools spent the day learning about livestock, farm equipment and day-to-day operations. For many of the kids, it was their first time on a farm and you could see that they were very intrigued, asking lots of great questions.
I was very impressed with the professional way the FFA young people handled this event. The future of farming is in good hands. Thanks for a great day.
