Husker Harvest Days over the years has served as a springboard for fundraising for the Nebraska FFA Foundation, which helps fund local FFA chapters and supervised agricultural experience programs around the state.
The need for that fundraising continues to grow as FFA in Nebraska expands to heights not seen before. That means over 11,000 FFA members in the state in 210 FFA chapters in the fall of 2022.
It has been said that besides the state FFA convention held each April in Lincoln, HHD is the largest gathering of FFA members in the state each year, and that isn’t including FFA members who travel to Husker Harvest Days from other states.
So, it is fitting that the annual FFA online-only auction, conducted again this year through BigIron Auctions, would conclude Sept. 14 during the show.
Sarah Mullen, development and marketing director for Nebraska FFA Foundation, says that BigIron has been helping with this benefit auction since 2016. Last year’s online auction raised $15,000, so the bar is set high for this year’s event.
Just like last year, a John Deere Gator will be one of the headline items at the auction, according to Mullen. However, numerous miscellaneous items will be available for supporters to bid on to help FFA members around Nebraska. Bidding begins online Aug. 31.
