Collegians Discuss Ag Issues

CFB Collegiate Members

Collegiate Farm Bureau members gathered last Saturday to compete in the CFB Collegiate Farm Bureau Discussion Meet competition. Three members from the NJC Collegiate Farm Bureau chapter and one from the CSU chapter competed in the meet and took tips and ideas from the assembled members and staff.

CSU's Riley Strand wins the 2009 Collegiate Discussion Meet.

Students PeterAmbrose, Adam Seymour, Scott Meyers and Riley Strand competed, discussing issues such as increasing participation in agriculture among young people, and increasing communication and shared understanding between urban dwellers and agriculturalists.

After three rounds of competition, Riley strand of CSU took the top position in the meet, winning a paid trip to the AFBF YF&R Convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Placing second was NJC Collegiate member Scott Meyers.
