Australian Agriculture

Robbie Hamby | Pleasanton Express

The Jourdanton ISD ag department got a visit last week from Queensland Australia when two Agforce school to industry Liaison officers from stopped by the ag building.  They were there to discuss how agriculture is taught in the United States, specifically Texas.  The pair work for AgForce Queensland which is an organization representing QueenslandÂ’s rural producers. Texas and Australia have a similar terrain and climate, but Australia struggles with securing enough interest in the agriculture industry as a potential career in youth.  The two also traveled to Las Vegas with the School to Industry Partnership Program.  Pictured, left to right, Jeff Kennedy, Poteet ag teacher, Tanya Nagle, John Lanier, Jourdanton ag teacher and Ali  Briggs.
