Podcast: Next Generation of Farmers

In this podcast, Lindsay Long, communications intern for the Nebraska Corn Growers Association member, shares about the success in the ag sector in recent years, we're seeing more and more young people interested in agriculture and food production—and more of them are returning to the farm to get involved with the family operation, or in some aspect of agriculture..

In mid-June, the National Corn Growers Association hosted a planning meeting in Bettendorf, Iowa, with a special emphasis on engaging younger farmers in their association.

I had the good fortune to attend, along with three other young Nebraskans including Mat Habrock, field services director for the Nebraska Corn Growers Association; Lance Atwater of Hastings, a recent UNL grad and NeCGA member; and Amanda Vodvarka from Dodge, a student in the Corn and Soy Mentoring Program.
