Title: RAM Sponsors First Ever FFA Day at Cattle Industry Convention

Ram Trucks will be promoting youth in agriculture and the National FFA Organization (FFA) with the first ever FFA Day at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Trade Show on Thursday Feb. 6, during the Cattle Industry Convention. The first 300 FFA members to register for convention will be covered in partnership with RAM Trucks.

“This is a great partnership and an opportunity to showcase what America’s cattlemen and women stand for,” said NCBA President and Cody, Wyoming cattleman Scott George. “The student members of the FFA are the future leaders of our association and the cattle business. Bringing Ram Trucks and FFA youth together to the Cattle Industry Convention to network, learn and see the cattle industry in action is a great opportunity.”

This will be an annual opportunity during future Cattle Industry Conventions for all FFA members to attend.  With more than 300 exhibitors and 7,000 cattle industry professionals in attendance, FFA members can be assured of an engagement that will educate them on the this attractive agricultural industry.
