Why I Made An Agriculture Blog
Hi, I'm Elyssa. I am a freshman that attends an agricultural vocational school for half a day every day. At this school, I've joined the local FFA chapter, its Jr. Parliamentary Procedure Team, and will be taking care of, training, and showing a lamb over the summer.
I made my Instagram page to share news and information regarding agriculture and the FFA. This is in compliance with the Creed, which states "I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task." Agricultural advocacy is vital for the success of future farmers and agriculturists. Without advocacy, careers in agriculture will be overlooked and generalized by many, even though the face of it has diversely changed over the years. It is even easier now to advocate for the FFA and agriculture with the rise in social media. I hope to accomplish my goal in spreading the word of agriculture.

What a Female FFA Member Needs
Sturdy Black Pantyhose
As a female FFA member, I know how easily pantyhose is to rip. When buying pantyhose, make sure it fits comfortably and does not bunch at the ankles. If you are attending a lengthy conference or overnight convention, it is best to pack multiple sets of pantyhose for when they rip.
Black Knee-Length Skirt
Although female FFA members are now permitted to wear black slacks as a part of official dress, many chapters still insist on the skirts. I get mine from Goodwill. However, they could just as easily be ordered from Amazon. The skirt should be comfortable enough to walk in and wear for long amounts of time.
Comfortable Black Dress Shoes
Do NOT overestimate how long you can walk in heels. I highly encourage-especially during long events- to opt for a more comfortable dress shoe, even if they're not as elegant as heels. The shoes I wore at National Convention this past year were UGLY, but I got to walk around for hours without my feet or ankles hurting.
