Students from across the county active in Future Farmers of America traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana over the weekend to attend the 92nd National FFA Convention and Expo.
With nearly 70,000 in attendance, the event is one of the world’s largest student conventions. Amber Charter, advisor for the Maxwell FFA Chapter, said the students favorite part of the convention was attending the Blue Room Session where they learned about innovative technology in agriculture.
“They learned about sensors being used in fields and greenhouses and how John Deere is beginning to implement advanced technology for diagnostic tests to determine maintenance on equipment from an office,” said Charter.
Both chapters in attendance also had time to explore popular Indiana attractions including Louisville Slugger Factory, Churchill Downs and a Dairy & Creamery, the Indiana Caverns, and the Sailor and Soldiers monument.
