AgCountry Farm Credit provides handbooks to FFA

The Fergus Falls office of AgCountry Farm Credit Services has presented the Wadena High School FFA chapter with their supply of FFA handbooks for the school year.

The handbooks go to FFA "greenhands," first-year students in the agricultural education curriculum. Roger Twedt of AgCountry Farm Credit Services in Fergus Falls presented 35 handbooks to Richard Muckala, ag instructor at Wadena High School.

The official Student Handbook of the National FFA Organization was originally developed in 1977 and revised in 1984, 1991, 1995 and 2006 through grants from the Farm Credit System.

Wadena High School was among over 80 schools in North Dakota and northwest Minnesota to receive over 2,300 handbooks from the Farm Credit Services Associations in North Dakota this year.

This is the 35th year that Farm Credit Services has provided FFA handbooks to area schools. In that time, more than 55,000 of the books have been donated.
