Earlier this month, FFA members from across the country traveled to Denver, CO, to explore careers in the animal systems industry.  The 73 FFA members attended the Next Gen Conference, which began in 2020 and focuses on specific pathways, from animal systems to biotechnology systems. Through the event, members access new ideas, trends and opportunities that connect them directly with industry leaders to explore future career paths.


FFA said the conference is designed specifically to give members hands-on, industry-relevant experience.  Members had a chance to explore diverse animal operations around Denver area, and learned how to plan for their future careers. In addition, they learned about marketing, new technologies and unique opportunities in animal systems.
