Hunter Lindgren, is a junior at Odebolt-Arthur/Battle Creek-Ida Grove. He is the son of Scott and Stacy Lindgren and a member of the school's FFA chapter.
1.) Why FFA?:
To learn about agriculture and its fun; It is fun because I get to do farm related things with my friends. FFA has taught me leadership needed to be successful in my own farming operation some day.
2.) FFA project:
I have done soil judging twice. I also enjoy crop scouting because it give me an opportunity to learn about crops, different types of pests, and increases my overall knowledge of crop production
3.) I've learned:
In FFA I have learned responsibility for coming to meetings on time, being ready to help with the test plot, practicing for soil judging and crop scouting, etc. I have also learned leadership through FFA. I am now one of the upperclassmen in our chapter and it is my job to help encourage our younger members.
4.) Career path:
After high school I plan on farming corn and soybeans while raising cattle. FFA has helped teach me good production practices to encourage a sound cattle operation as well as financial advice in ag business.
5.) College plans:
I plan on attending a 2 year college in Iowa for ag business or ag studies to help prepare me for my own farming operation
6.) FFA activities:
I participated in soil judging twice as well as crop scouting. I have attended state convention in 2013 and help with many of the volunteer opportunities that our chapter has.
