SARANAC, Mich. – A Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch team member has been appointed to the Michigan FFA Foundation Board of Directors, which helps grow the state’s future agricultural leaders.

Brittany Brown, senior pullet manager at Herbruck’s for 10 years, joined the Michigan FFA Foundation board in February after being involved with the FFA since high school.

“As an FFA Foundation board member I have great opportunities to interact with students and share my knowledge of the agricultural industry that I’ve learned through my own involvements with the FFA and working at Herbruck’s,” Brown said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve and help continue shaping our industry’s future leaders.”

The board is in place to help ensure the FFA can support students for generations to come. It works to encourage young people to be leaders in agriscience and help develop the careers of Michigan’s future agricultural leaders. The foundation board supports the Michigan FFA, which prepares students to fulfill the growing diversity and new opportunities in the agricultural industry.

Brown participated in the Michigan FFA in high school, holding the treasurer position for two years, served on the Belding FFA Board and judged FFA competitions held at Ionia High School.
