The Farm Credit System Foundation has bestowed $120,000 in grants to three organizations that focus on young people involved in agriculture.

"The Foundation seeks out programs that develop agriculture's next generation," says John Hays, Farm Credit System Foundation vice president. "We understand that getting young people involved with farming and keeping them involved is essential to agriculture's future in the United States. Farming is a challenging career and the next generation of farmers will need a strong education as well as great leadership and decision making skills to succeed."
