FFA members optimistic about farming's future
Brooke Wente sees farmers and doctors as similar: Both keep people alive.
“We cannot survive without farming,” the Morris, Minn., native and Minnesota FFA secretary said.
Given that, she added, she is very optimistic about farming’s future.
“Yes, agriculture is a risky business ... but the opportunity for success is very strong on the benefit side,” Wente said.
Even with success stories out there, young farmers are struggling.
