To receive free registration, FFA members and advisors should visit convention.beefusa.org and register to attend the trade show using the promotion code “FFACULVERS.”

“These FFA members will someday be responsible for feeding our country, so it’s important that they have opportunities to learn from current agricultural professionals,” said Jessie Kreke, senior marketing manager at Culver’s. “We are proud to help these passionate students learn more about an industry they’re interested in joining.”

Culver’s Thank You Farmers Project is focused on making sure we have enough wholesome food to serve our growing population by supporting agricultural education programs that encourage smart farming.
