National FFA Officers Visit RFD-TV Anchors in Nashville

Mark Oppold reports, “It’s always great to have visitors in our RFD-TV studios, but we’re always proud to have National FFA Officers visit.” Pictured with NAFB members, Janet Adkison, Marlin Bohling and Mark Oppold, are National FFA Secretary Nick Baker and National Eastern Region Vice President Sydney Snider. “We’re always impressed with the quality and professionalism of our national officers. It gives us confidence that the next generation is ready for the challenge to feed the world,” Mark said.

RFD-TV is also partnering with NAFB members to help keep viewers and listeners up-to-date on crop and livestock conditions around the country. Mark said, “Lynn Ketelsen from Linder Farm Network supplies us regular video packages covering a variety of topics from Minnesota. Russell Nemetz and Lane Nordlund do the same from Northern Ag Network in Montana. NAFB President-Elect Tony St. James joins us on the phone every Wednesday from Lubbock, TX, and South Region Vice President Lorrie Boyer checks in from KSIR in Ft. Morgan, CO. John Jenkinson from the Kansas keeps us up-to-date on the condition of the wheat crop in the Western Plains. Patrick Cavanaugh from California Ag Today does the same for crops in California. If we need updates from Nebraska, Susan Littlefield from KZEN is our guest. Listeners on Sirius/XM Rural Radio Channel 147 can hear Agri Talk’s Mike Adams each day. We appreciate all their good work, and we are expanding to all areas of the country with other NAFB members.”
