FFA makes its way to Husker Harvest Days

Wednesday, September 12 the Fairbury FFA Chapter attended the annual Husker Harvest Days. 37 of 50 students in FFA traveled to Grand Island for the event.

“The big purpose and highlight is so students can see the latest technology in equipment and irrigation, all sorts of things, it shows them a wide variety of agribusinesses from seed to agreality,” FFA Advisor Mr. Dux said.

Dux said that they have traveled to Husker Harvest Days all four years he has been an advisor and, he remembers going to the event when he was in high school. He thinks the Chapter has gone for maybe the past 20 years.

Michaela Buchli ’19 said, “[I have] never been before, so I think it was beneficial to learn about all the different types of vendors that were there. For example, the different seed companies that were selling products. I had no idea there were that many varieties of seed on the market. Also, I got a lot of free sunglasses and hats, so that was pretty awesome.”

Dux also had a good time getting to connect with other ag teachers from around and also getting to see the new Fendt Combine.
