Message from Texas Farm Bureau AgLead XIII supporter John Deere

“John Deere is a major sponsor and supporter of the Texas Farm Bureau’s Agricultural Leadership Enhancement and Development (AgLead) program.  It is critically important to develop leaders in agriculture to meet the many challenges of producing food and fiber for a growing world population. AgLead empowers farmers and ranchers with the skills they need to meet the many challenges of sustainable crop and livestock production. We need these future leaders to advocate on behalf of agriculture, understand the political and regulatory processes that impact their business and develop long-term plans to improve and strengthen their farm operations.”
