Ruth Kimmelshue
FFA National Convention

Agriculture is how we’ll ensure a safe, sustainable, and affordable food system. It’s how we’ll lift up women in farming communities, regenerate our soils, and innovate future supply chains. It’s how we’ll come together to address global issues facing our industry, including climate change, water conservation, and more. It’s how we’ll energize the next generation of growers – giving them a platform to drive change and inspire new ideas.

On Thursday, October 31, 2019, Cargill’s Ruth Kimmelshue addressed the 92nd FFA National Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. Speaking to nearly 20,000 FFA members from across the United States, she encouraged the nation’s future ag leaders to consider how agriculture can address some of the most important issues of our time.
