FFA seeking bigger agriculture involvement

Dorr is located in northern Allegan County
Dorr is located in northern Allegan County

DORR (WKZO) -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture and others involved with farming have been saying for some time that the country faces a shortage of farmers in coming years.  With that in mind, the FFA held a tractor parade in the Allegan County community of Dorr over the weekend.

The farmers who took part say they need to get more young people interested in their line of work, and are worried about what will happen to our food supply if they can't do it.  USDA says less than five-percent of farm operators nationwide are under the age of 35.
