You’re never too young to start teaching people about agriculture.
The goal of the Farmer’s Care Contest is to help them carry their advocating skills onto the web.
High school FFA members from across the state grabbed a video camera and headed out to the barn. Since this year’s contest theme was “Farmers Care,” members were instructed to focus on animal care in livestock production.
The videos are judged based on how many “views” they get. The video with the most views wins a cash prize for their chapter.
As an FFA Alumni member, I loved seeing so many members participate in this contest. Every day my Facebook news feed is full of FFA members promoting their videos.
Below are a few of my favorite videos.
You can find many more by searching YouTube for the Ky Farmers Care Contest.
Of course, I have to share one from my own former chapter:
I want to commend these members and their agriculture teachers for taking on the challenges of shooting and publishing a video.
These videos are proof that it doesn’t take a journalism degree, fancy software or even a high school diploma to tell farmers’ stories online.
