NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFDTV) – During RFD-TV’s RURAL TOWN HALL, members of Missouri FFA were in attendance to converse with 2016 presidential candidate George Pataki. Maggie Voisard, Missouri State FFA Officer, brings up how the impact of expertise in science technology, engineering, and math will influence agriculture.

“In today’s society we are seeing the increasing need for expertise in science technology, engineering, and math.” says Voisard. “How do you see them impacting the future of the country and particularly the agriculture industry?”

“Agriculture is changing, and it’s changing in a number of different ways at the same time. One of them is the development of technology.” states Pataki. “And, what we have to do is have outreach for continual learning and the ability in rural Iowa, rural New York, to be able to link to educational facilities, courses.”
