Denise Announces Plan to Support Young Farmers & Ranchers at Florida FFA Convention
This evening, at the 90th Session of Florida’s FFA State Convention in Orlando, I’m unveiling my plan to equip Florida’s next generation of ag-leaders, and empower young farmers and ranchers across the state.
The next generation of agriculture technology is here, and we should be outfitting our next generation of agriculture leaders with the tools to embrace it. Precision agriculture is redefining the way we plant our crops and raise our livestock, and our educational models should be in lock-step.
In my plan, I outline a number of the challenges and my approach to solutions as Florida’s next Commissioner of Agriculture.
Additionally, I worked with House co-sponsor, Representative Jake Raburn, to sponsor and pass legislation which became law this year to create a Young Farmers and Ranchers Advisory Council at the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, as well as an online clearinghouse of information and resources critical to young farmers and ranchers just starting out.
