Merck Animal Health is a devout supporter of the National FFA Organization, which was evident throughout the 89th National FFA Convention with their sponsorship of the opening session, lanyards and presence in the expo.
I caught up with Cameron Aguiar, national accounts manager, Merck, who said, “FFA is the future of America. We find value in educating kids on the new technologies in animal health and this is a perfect venue to do it.” They also helped promote the National FFA campaign #SpeakAg, helping to provide a voice for FFA members at home, in their chapters, throughout their college years and into a career in agriculture.
Merck Animal Health is focused on technology and innovation. They also recognize the need to educate people of it’s benefits. Cameron said that one way to do so is through FFA members. He said many conversations took place in their booth where they were able to share opportunities for internships, questions students might have on future careers in animal health and what steps they can take to help share the role innovation and technology play in our daily lives.
