Students Attend National Young Farmers & Ranchers Conference

Ferrum College Agriculture Club in Virginia BeachOn February 7, 2014, six Ferrum College Agriculture Club and Collegiate Young Farmers students traveled to Virginia Beach to represent both Ferrum College and the State of Virginia at the National Young Farmers and Ranchers Conference. Junior Mary Hammock competed in the Collegiate Discussion Meet at the national level. Hammock was accompanied by freshman Emily Baynard, freshman Mackenzie Borellis, junior William “Billy Mac” Halsey, freshman Virginia Pannill, and sophomore Alex Shepley. Over the course of the weekend, the students networked with individuals from across the nation about current agricultural issues and gained ideas about how to enhance their respective clubs.
