Last time, we explored what participants in the 2019 Land O’Lakes Global Food Challenge Emerging Leaders Program learned and how they planned to put those learnings into practice. Here, the Emerging Leaders talk about what made the biggest impressions on them during their travels.
Riley hails from his family’s sixth generation farm outside of Abilene, Kansas, and he is now studying Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Kansas State University. Growing up, Riley traveled the Midwest with his family, showing cattle at livestock shows and advocating for food production, which has fed his passion for agriculture. As the global population continues to rise, Riley views agriculture technologies as the way to feed, fuel and clothe the world. Riley is excited to work with the other Emerging Leaders to begin developing a brighter future for the generations to follow.
