Hartington FFA members attend Husker Harvest Days

Posted in:

Grand Island — Jellies and crafts to tractors and grain bins — you could find just about anything at the 2019 Husker Harvest Days. 

Twenty members of the Hartington-Newcastle FFA Chapter got to experience the excitement of the largest working irrigated farm show. Students attended at no charge, since each member donated five non-perishable food items. All the food donated will be given to food banks all around Nebraska. 

“The amount of different equipment that I was able to see and being able to talk with many businesses made me feel connected with many of the FFA sponsors; plus the brisket sandwich was amazing,” said Nathan Potts, senior, one of the members in attendance.

One of the opportunities students participated in was a business scavenger hunt. With teams of four, the students went around to different businesses that fit the description of the Agricultural, Food and Natural Resources career pathway. Once they visited the seven different businesses, they visited the University of Nebraska booth and received a free t-shirt. After all the team were done with this activity they had the opportunity to look at all the booths. 

 “Learning about the different brands of four-wheelers and deciding that the Yamaha brand was the best.” was one of the businesses that Chase Lammers, senior, went to and discussed the equipment. Each student had plenty of opportunities to talk with a plethora of businesses. 

Over all, the day was a success and we would like to shout out to all the business that contributed to the day.
