Sleepy Eye FFA members are getting ready to travel to the FFA National Convention and Exhibition. Their bus ran on biodiesel, and the cost of the fuel was donated by the Minnesota Corn and Soybean Growers Association.

BROWN County — Using check funds, Brown County corn and soybean growers made a cash donation to the Sleepy Eye FFA chapter to provide biodiesel that was used to transport students to the FFA National Convention and Exposition.

The National Convention and Exposition was held in Indianapolis from October 26-29. In order to compete at the national level, students had to qualify at local competitions. At the Convention & Expo, students entered competitions, volunteered during National Days of Service, and attended other classes to broaden their skills.

“We made this donation to Sleepy Eye FFA to enable them to compete nationally, which is very important for these students.” Brown County Treasurer Gary Houser said. “Going to FFA Nationals is an experience they will never forget. The board is happy to help our communities and students.”

Members of the FFA may compete in team and individual events. Some of the categories are food science, agricultural sales, forestry, livestock valuation, and many more.

One member of the Sleepy Eye Chapter placed in the top four in the country as a national-level finalist in the Landscape Management category. Other FFA National Convention highlights for the Sleepy Eye chapter included the National Poultry Team ranked 12th in the nation and individuals ranked 10th and 11th, and the National Quiz Team ranked eighth in the nation.

The Sleepy Eye FFA chapter also had six members at the National Conference named American FFA degree holders. This is the highest honor that can be awarded to an FFA member. Only two percent of all FFA members receive this prestigious award.

The FFA is an organization for those interested in agriculture and public school leadership. This allows students to solve problems and develop skills while exploring their own interests.

Members are future chemists, veterinarians, bankers, teachers and specialists in many career fields. FFA not only prepares students for their future, but through the organization, students can apply for grants and scholarships to further their studies.

“We are proud to support an organization that helps and empowers students to prepare for their future.” This was stated by Brown County Chairman Keith Landt. “FFA is a strong organization that the Brown County corn and soybean growers have long supported and will continue to support for this very reason.”

Brown County corn and soybean growers have donated funds specifically for biodiesel to support the secession as well as promote the use of Minnesota soybeans.

The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association is the leader in the nation when it comes to biodiesel. Minnesota was the first state to require biodiesel in diesel blends, and in 2018 Minnesota became the first state to require B20. Using the B20 is equivalent to removing about 201,000 vehicles from the state’s roads every year. The Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Board is also investing in resources to get information about biodiesel.
