MJC Discussion Meet Team at YF&R Competition
On December 8th, the Modesto Junior College Discussion Meet Team traveled to Monterey for the annual California Farm Bureau Conference. The team listened in on several rounds of the Young Farmers & Ranchers Discussion Meet. Over a two-day period, they were able to gain valuable information and skills for their upcoming contest in February. Additionally, the Ag Ambassadors ran a booth at the conference’s trade show. This was a great opportunity to network and share information on the Modesto Junior College Agricultural Program with others around the state.
