We are a group of individuals working towards a common goal. Thanks to Hunting Enthusiasts like you, this fund-raiser has been a great success for our FFA chapter. 100% of these funds are used to support Cody, Wyoming’s FFA program. Thanks to you, we can award college scholarships, send kids to leadership camps, and operate a student farm and livestock facility in Cody. The scholarships we award keep the FFA values alive in the college setting.
The Buffalo Bill FFA Alumni is a non-profit organization that strives to assist the Buffalo Bill FFA Chapter by funding various chapter activities, such as livestock judging, leadership conventions and stock jackpots. We have also awarded numerous scholarships to graduating seniors in amounts ranging from $500.00 to $1500.00. In addition to financially supporting college bound students, our top priority is to help Cody FFA members engage in supervised agricultural activities. In (YEAR) the Alumni provided over $60,000.00 to build a livestock facility. The barn benefits our youth in many ways. This building provides a place to raise and maintain animals that some students would not have the opportunity to experience without this resource. The land around the outbuilding is also owned and managed by members of the Cody FFA. The pasture allows FFA students the chance to manage the fields in hopes of producing a sustainable crop. Through hard work, our youth are developing a sense of being stewards of the land.
Not only does the Buffalo Bill FFA Chapter strive to manage the assets near the barn, they volunteer countless hours helping other non-profit organizations in our local area. Each fall members of the Cody FFA can be seen at the Heart Mountain Nature Preserve removing barbed wire or assisting Trout Unlimited by collecting fish trapped in the irrigation channels. These students are developing competent and assertive leadership skills through these experiences.
Conserving natural resources and instilling in our youth long-term thinking associated with sustainability ensures the future of wildlife habitats and maintaining an agricultural way of life. By supporting the Buffalo Bill FFA youth, you are ensuring this pillar to future generations.
