CAHNRS students learn in Windy City

Four CAHNRS students attended the 2019 Agriculture Future of America (AFA) Food Institute in Chicago, Ill. from Jan. 27-29. Alongside 75 college students from across the country, attendees learned all about food production: from the moment crops leave the farm and processing to R&D and marketing to packaging and everything in between. As future agricultural professionals, these students are preparing to take on the challenges ahead. To learn more about AFA and the Food Institute, visit
