Farmers Produce More Than Produce
The Farmers Produce More Than Produce program shows how agriculture touches our lives every day, beyond the food we eat.
Currently, the campaign is showcased at the Minnesota Farm Bureau building on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, through a youth video contest and lesson plans for agriculture in the classroom activities. Stay tuned for more opportunities to bring Farmers Produce More Than Produce messages to your community.
Congratulations to Riley Allord of Fort Ripley, who was selected as the 2022 "Farmers Produce More than Produce" video contest. Allord won the competition with an educational video about flowers and Minnesota bees. He will receive $200 to host a video release party and a movie poster featuring his winning video.
Kaytlynn Kenyon of Hancock and Josie Brandt of Clontarf were also recognized for their submissions highlighting the many byproducts that come from livestock.
The Farmers Produce More than Produce video contest was open to youth across the state, encouraging them to create videos :30 seconds or less containing accurate agricultural facts that focused on one of two topic areas: livestock or crops.
This was the second year the competition was held. You can view the 2021 winning video here.
