On July 8, representatives from Cargill, an international provider of food, agricultural and risk management products and services, paired with FFA advisers to provide perspective about the parallels that Cargill and FFA have in regards to leadership in agriculture.

Participants from Hillsboro were Brea Allen, Heather Goldsby, Bri Loewen, Andy Klassen, Brandon Brown, Jacob Fish, John Hein and David Winter. Adviser Sonya Roberts also attended.
