Want to get a glimpse of the unlimited promise of Iowa agriculture? Just take a look at photos from Iowa’s the annual FFA leadership conference, which was held this week on the Iowa State University campus. It was packed with thousands of blue-jacketed teens, who are pumped up about farming, agribusiness and the ever-expanding variety of careers producing food, fuel, fiber and other great things from the land.

Farm Bureau is an enthusiastic supporter of FFA and we were happy to welcome many of the FFAers to our booth, where they could say in pictures why they are so excited by agriculture. You can see them all on our website and our Instragram page.
