NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) As the 91st National FFA Convention gets underway in Indianapolis, RFD-TV’s Mark Oppold talks with Culver’s CEO and President, Joe Koss, about his company’s involvement in the event.

This year, Culver’s is continuing the popular free frozen custard giveaway at its booth, just as it did at last year's convention. 

“This has just been a natural fit for Culver’s,” Koss said. “We’re very proud of the food that we serve at Culver’s, whether it’s our Fresh, Never Frozen Beef, whether it’s the great dairy products that we serve – our Fresh, Frozen Custard. We couldn’t provide those products to our guests without the great American Farmer. Our Thank You Farmer project started a number of years ago, and a part of that project is our support for the FFA, a great leadership development organization, and really the future leaders in agriculture.”

With regard to the future challenges facing the next generation of farmers, Koss was full of optimism and admiration: “Just look around this room, and I’d say the future of agriculture is pretty bright. We’ve got all these fantastic young men and women who are up the challenge of trying to figure out how are we going to feed this growing population with limited resources. And it’s going to take innovation, it’s going to take technology, it’s going to take a number of different ways to do that, but, you look at these folks here; they’re up to that challenge!”

Watch the video above to catch the complete interview.

If you’re at the convention, stop by Booth #539 to get your free frozen custard – and be sure to give a big “THANK YOU” to the folks at Culver’s for their support of the Future Farmers of America!
