The Elmwood FFA has kept very busy with the numerous activities they participated in during the month of September.
First, a pedal pull was conducted for the Hancock Railroad Club on Sept. 8. Approximately a dozen and a half contestants showed their strength by competing in an event that involved children hauling a sled loaded with weight. Prizes were presented to the top six youngsters, and each child received a ribbon and a pencil for participation in the event. There were many members that showed up to help with this event.
On Sept. 21, the chapter conducted a pedal pull before the Bowling Green State University game for the third consecutive year. It was in cooperation with the Farm Bureau, as part of their "Agricultural Night." This pedal pull was not a contest between the youngsters, but rather a recreational event. Those who wished to stay for the game were also given free tickets. Some of the members helping were Josh Mckenzie, Morgan Huff, and Chris Brown.
Eight chapter members visited Riker Farm Seeds near Bowling Green, on Sept. 12 as they met to participate in an agronomy training event. They joined with students from Eastwood, Woodmore, Gibsonburg, Otsego, Lakota, Oak Harbor, and Bowling Green for the seminar.
The main focus of this event was on plant genetics, yield potential, plant health, grain marketing, and career possibilities in the areas of soybean, and corn production. During the event, Monsanto emphasized population growth and the need for addressing food production in the future.
