National FFA Officers Tour Japan

This year’s National FFA Officer Team will mark National FFA Week criss-crossing the nation, following their trip overseas to learn about agriculture and consumer trends in Japan.  Secretary Grant Norfleet explained the highlights of the trip that took place last month.

Japan is one of the U.S.’s largest trading partners, regularly importing American wheat, pork and beef.  Norfleet reflected on one major difference between American and Japanese consumer habits.

However, Norfleet noted several similarities.

National FFA Secretary Grant Norfleet is from Mexico, Mo.  He tells Regional Radio that he’ll mark National FFA Week with visits to chapters in Alaska and Idaho.
