DairyCast update for November 4, 2009, Who is giving $120,000,000 to agriculture?

The week before last provided an excellent opportunity to regain a fresh perspective on the future of our industry. It was a pleasure for me to take part in the some of the activities of the 82nd National FFA Convention. There is nothing quite like the enthusiasm and excitement of tens of thousands of young people focused on feeding a growing world population through agriculture advancements.

Even though enthusiasm and excitement will not cause the challenges we face to disappear without hard work, I believe that positive thinking will do much more than negative thinking. It is great to see the way that FFA is developing our next generation of industry leaders.
