I had some fun times at the Farm Progress Show this week but probably no more than I had with Iowa State ag communications student Katie Johnson. She took a few days off school to work in the media center sponsored by BASF and help out the reporters as well as public relations professionals floating around the tent drumming up interviews for their clients.
She also drove us lazy people around the site on a golf cart and I talked her in to driving me around and stopping at a few booths to check out their wares. I must say, I was VERY impressed with how much Katie knows about agriculture. She grew up on a farm and her passion for ag was contagious.
So here is a short video of my Farm Progress Experience with Katie Johnson. BTW – We stopped at the Monsanto tent and they had ag questions all over their tent and Katie got nearly every question correct. Impressive. Oh, and she needs an internship for next summer and her ideal place would be with a corn growers association – hint, hint.
