FFA Caucus is back for the 118th Congress!

We have some good news for the future of agriculture! U.S. Representatives Tracey Mann and Jimmy Panetta are reestablishing the Congressional FFA Caucus for the 118th Congress!

Both representatives co-founded the caucus back in 2021 and it aimed to be an informal, bipartisan group dedicated to issues related to the next generation of ag leaders.

Representative Mann says, “Now more than ever, we need young people with the foresight, creativity, and skills necessary to meet the challenge of delivering food, fiber, and fuel to the world. The FFA Caucus provides a unique opportunity for Congress to reach across the aisle and promote the next generation of food and agriculture.”

To date, the FFA Caucus has hosted more than 2,000 FFA members on Capitol Hill.
