Thirty college students will attend the USDA’s 2020 Ag Outlook Forum as participants in the USDA Future Leaders of Agriculture Program. Since 2007, USDA has provided opportunities for undergrad and graduate-level students to better understand contemporary agribusiness, scientific research, and agricultural policy through its leadership program.
Later this week, students in the program will take part in a week-long trip to Washington, D.C., where they will tour the capitol, meet with USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue and attend the Forum on February 20-21. They will also take part in a USDA briefing and discussion of career opportunities with agriculture leaders in academics, government, and industry.
