FFA members optimistic about farming
MINNEAPOLIS – Brooke Wente sees farmers and doctors as similar: Both keep people alive.
“We cannot survive without farming,” the Morris, Minn., native and Minnesota FFA secretary said.

“Yes, agriculture is a risky business ... but the opportunity for success is very strong on the benefit side,” Wente said.
Even with success stories out there, young farmers are struggling.
