The FFA Creed By. Micah Nelson and zack sexton

I believe in the future of agriculture with a faith born not of words but of deeds---achievements won by the present and the past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as better things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggle of former years.

I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or be ingaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which,even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny.

I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public intrest in producing and marketing the product of our toil.

I believe in less dependace on begging and more power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so - for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed;in being happy myself and playing square with whose happiness depends on me.

I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.
