John Deere Ag Expo In Bozeman This Weekend

BOZEMAN -

Hundreds of future farmers across the west are in Bozeman this weekend for the second John Deere Ag Expo at Montana State University.

High school students from Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and North Dakota are competing in a variety of agricultural areas.

The students are being judged in agricultural communications, livestock judging and even agriculture sales.

Organizers said these contests are developed to help the future farmers succeed in the state's largest industry.

"Not only are they competing in events that are going to make a difference in the ag economy as a whole in Montana, but they are also learning leadership skills, speaking skills that are going to take them far," said Jamie Edmundson, Montana FFA executive director.

The ag expo will wrap up Saturday afternoon with an award ceremony.
