The FFA Foundation is excited to welcome, Senator Steve Daines, to welcome our students on Friday morning. Senator Daines has been a consistent encourager to our students at John Deere Ag Expo and the FFA Foundation.
The John Deere Ag Expo welcomes over 1,500 FFA and 4-H members from over 60 schools, which does require a number of volunteers. We welcome all volunteers to proctor tests, judge speaking events, and assist with livestock judging reasons. Volunteers do not have to be involved with FFA previously to judge.

The FFA encourages their members to get involved and develop a positive set of attitudes and skills that will enable them to become tomorrow’s leaders today. Programs like the FFA teach the youth of our communities some of the most valuable lessons they will ever receive. This is our future and John Deere wants everyone to know that they support the future of agriculture in Montana. Public is welcome to attend the event.
The Montana FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of its members across the state; through Agriculture Education, leadership development opportunities, Career Development Events, and the promotion of community based projects.
