STROMSBURG, NEB – With an agriculture program that has only been in existence for four years, the Cross County FFA Chapter hosted their first ever Ag Safety Day & Open House this past week.

On Friday, students and the public filed in to catch a glimpse of an agriculture program that has come so far in such a short time. From a single small classroom, to housing their own facilities including: a state of the art agriculture shop, a beef/animal lab, and even a greenhouse.

Cross County FFA President, Madi Baker, said students are blessed to have this program.
