Legislative Agricultural Day

Illinois has a diverse background in agricultural education and the state’s youth often get their start in hundreds of FFA Chapters and county fairs across the state. One-quarter of the state’s economy is based in agriculture and today more than ever, the state’s FFA and county fair programs are a vibrant part of the Land of Lincoln’s rich ag history

On March 5, as part of the annual legislative agricultural education day, Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) introduced the 2015 Illinois State Fair Queen and the 2014-2014 Illinois State FFA President. To see more about the introductions of Richland County’s Sadie Gassmann and Coles County’s Cody Morris, visit the Senate Republican Caucus Facebook site at www.facebook.com/ILSenateGOP.
