I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds - achievements won by the present and past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as the better things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggles of former years.

I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny.

I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest in producing and marketing the product of our toil.

I believe in less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so--for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me.

I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.

scared about rabbit showing outfit

this upcoming school year i’m going to start showing rabbits. me and my grandma went shopping to buy clothes but i ended up buying a belt on amazon. we couldn’t find any good belts in our area but wearing an amazon belt makes me feel like people will judge me and think i’m a “poser” or something. i also don’t have any belt buckles so i bought one that i thought was pretty and was affordable until i can win one but that also makes me nervous that people will judge me for buying one instead of having one that i won. should i find a new belt and not wear my buckle or are my fears unfounded?

FFA Creed

I have Creed competitions the next few days. I did it during the fall and placed pretty well. I've been told I need to fix my face work on some hand motions. Anybody got any ideas to help with those.

Update: I placed third today in Creed. All they said is that I need to elaborate on my answers to questions.

Official Dress

I am a new FFA member and am going to a state convention soon. I am trying to find out if my skirt can be maxi length/longer than the typical length. I tried looking it up, nothing says against it, I just am wondering if it is allowed or looked down upon.

Keeping everything clean

So can I put my scarf in the washer and dryer? What settings are recommended? Also, how do I keep my jacket clean that doesn't require dry cleaning, will steaming do it justice?

Officer elections

How does your chapter elect new officers? Ours always ends up political and everyone is frustrated and it’s very complicated- multiple rounds of interviews with chapter alumni and current officers, plus a voting among members, do it just ends up being a popularity contest. Need some new ideas.

FFA Meeting Ideas.

Hi,

Our Chapter's Officer Team does not get on very well, so off meetings are very awkward and silent, every idea being shot down by someone or another. I am trying to find something good for a March chapter meeting and I've come up with ideas like stations, minute to win it (the sequel), scavenger hunts, etc, but I'm trying to find something else that is fun. We have done movie night, cookie decorating, water wars, backyard games, card games, pumpkin painting, and a couple of other things, but it's really just boring stuff that you can do at home, so it's nothing special, but I am trying to find ideas to make meetings special parts of the month. Does anyone have any ideas for some meeting activities that would make meetings fun and engaging? Or any ideas to expand on stations, scavenger hunts, or minute to win it (the sequel)?

Foreign student seeking info on how drive your tractor to school day is organized and run

Title says it all, I was told by the national organization that individual chapters organize the day with local government and police so I was interested how these days are run with different chapters as this is something I am trying to replicate with my school

Thank you in advance

Years later, but this was honestly one of the most disengiune FFA articles I came across.

https://www.ffa.org/ag-101/ag-101-the-good-and-bad-of-climate-change/

I understand that climate change can benefit certain crops and areas but presenting climate change as a pro con issue doesn't speak to the matter of the subject or anything you would read in the IPCC. Climate change is a net con.

Wearing my old FFA jacket casually… yes or no?

I transferred high schools and used to participate in FFA at my old school. I am not a member anymore due to my old school not competing in what I want to compete in! Is it wrong to wear my jacket casually? It was expensive and I still want to support FFA. Is this a big no no since it is the OD jacket?

Can I still wear FFA degree pins after graduation?

Wearing them on your person, such as on a suit or whatnot. Specially for non-FFA events and whatnot.

Pins like awards, Greenhand, etc..

What are some good SAE ideas?

For context I live in Connecticut and literally nothing ever happens here. It’s also cold for more than half the year so I can’t grow anything during winter.

Opinions on contests

Does anyone have experience with the individual sales or radio broadcast contests? We did very well in team ag sales last year, and are doing it again this year to try and win our state contest, but I need another contest for subdistricts and districts. Currently stuck between the two above. On the one hand, individual sales would help me prepare for team sales, but if I advance to state it may be an overwhelming amount of sales. Any help is appreciated.

Showing market rabbits

I’m currently a couple weeks into my first market rabbit project. I’m raising 5 Californian rabbits and have just begun working on showing them and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on getting them used to it? Two of them a super chill and don’t mind being posed at all and one is even ok with being flipped over (still working on the other) but the other two are super wiggly and as soon as I take my hand off their eyes when I’m done posing them they move their heads and front paws. Grateful for any tips you have!

(Also my fifth rabbit is grey, I’m pretty sure I can’t show him because of fur but just curious as to why if anyone knows!)

Does anyone else wear their jacket after they graduate?

In older movies I have seen characters wear their FFA jacket around the town as a regular jacket, is that frowned upon nowadays?
