The Animal Agriculture Alliance is excited to announce the re-launch of College Aggies Online, a program developed in partnership with the American National CattleWomen, Inc. to help today's college students become confident advocates for the agriculture industry.
"Last year, 350 students representing 50 universities shared their stories on the College Aggies Online network," said Alliance Executive Vice President Kay Johnson Smith. "Students who participate in the program do more than just build their resume - they help ensure the future of American agriculture."
Students with a passion for agriculture are encouraged to sign up at http://aggiesonline.ning.com. After creating a personal profile on the network, members will gain access to a private forum where they can discuss current and emerging issues facing farmers and ranchers with other young agriculturists from across the country.

It was a lot of fun watching agriculture advocates in college tell their story and do it well. We are fortunate to work with college ag groups from time to time and it never ceases to amaze me how passionate they are about agriculture. Their efforts have made a big difference on our nation’s campuses. This year’s College Aggies Online effort will no doubt be just enthusiastic.
