Meet Your 2016-17 Nebraska State FFA Secretary: Nicholas Taylor

Nicholas Taylor from the Logan View FFA chapter lives on his family’s farm where they grow corn and soybeans outside of Nickerson. His tractor and combine rides with his DadIMG_1477 and Grandpa first sparked his interest in agriculture. He will major in Actuarial Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Ever since he saw his brother in FFA, he wanted to join. He felt like this was the perfect way to demonstrate his interest in agriculture and continue to learn upon what his dad and grandpa had taught him. He could not wait to take his first agriculture class – Agri-business. After that, he took Agri-business II, Ag Mechanics, Horticulture, and Ag Employment. His favorite FFA activities have been prepared public speaking, National FFA band, and creed speaking.

Working on the family farm was a part of his diversified crop production Supervised Agricultural Experience program. The other part of his SAE included working at Syngenta Seeds research plots. He also has an entrepreneurial vegetable production segment of his SAE. All of these components of his SAE have prepared him for his career goals by providing funds for his higher education and giving him business experience in running his own vegetable production business.
