In the latest installment of the AnimalAgCast, AgWired’s Jamie Johansen was at Missouri State Fair and spoke with Colton Spencer, Missouri FFA Association President. Colton hails from Aurora, MO, and has proven himself as an agricultural ambassador through both his work in FFA and his successful career showing Gelbvieh cattle. His work as State FFA President has allowed him to represent the beef industry nationwide and spread the word about agriculture to industry representatives nationwide.
“As an FFA officer you have a constant opportunity to make an impact and make new contacts and conversations about agriculture, both in the industry and outside of the industry. When I’m in official dress and I see consumers in the grocery store, that’s an opportunity to have some great conversations and make a significant impact,” he said during the podcast.
