GREAT FALLS — As part of National FFA Week, members of the Great Falls chapter spent time talking with grade-schoolers on Wednesday about agriculture and ranching.



The FFA students were able to speak with more than 800 first-graders in Great Falls this week.

Members talked about things such how wheat is turned to flour, and touched on some of the common misconceptions about agriculture.

“It's a really big deal because we get to help show everybody who we are and what we've been doing all year,” said Electric City FFA member Kortney Deaton.

The students also got to enjoy a reading of the book “Torgy the Tractor” - read by the author, Linda Boatman of Great Falls.

Montana FFA has 5,100 members and 99 Chapters.
