Training the Next Crop of Ag Professionals
February 27, 2019
Toni Rasmussen is a former farm kid who knows the pride of donning an FFA jacket. Thanks to support from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, she's using her life experience and education to share that pride with high school students, too.
As a high schooler in Albion, Rasmussen was inspired by her ag education class, which propelled her to organize a goat enterprise for her family farm. Naturally, a career in ag education was a perfect next step for her. Today, she's one of 200 instructors across the state working in a full-time position teaching agriculture to high school students.
