Agriculture Students Visit the Capitol

On March 13, high school agriculture students from across the state came together in Springfield to speak on behalf of their industry.

Every year during the spring legislative session, farmers, representatives from ag industry associations, and members of high school FFA chapters take part in what they call Illinois Ag Lobby Day. Their goal is to advocate for agriculture and remind legislators how important the industry is to Illinois.

State Senator Sue Rezin said it’s a great experience for the students to get involved at a young age and underscored the importance of agriculture as the state’s top industry.
