Take the Leadership Step

As we all know agriculture has been challenging, but having strong leaders on the local, state and national levels can make a world of difference. Being a good leader isn’t always about being the best, but more importantly making everyone else around you better. I have always strived to be that type of leader. I encourage you to reflect on what characteristics you feel make a good leader. Then seek out opportunities to develop those skills. I guarantee our rural communities need you and others to be strong advocates to share our story.
