Liz Rabbe and Dan Helvig are both products of the Martin County West school district in southern Minnesota, and both chose to major in agriculture education at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Helvig graduated recently and is now a sales rep for a seed company. Rabbe is a sophomore this year.

They are also products of FFA leadership, and it shows in the way they speak about education, agriculture, rural life and their futures. They sat down with me to do this video during the Labor Day weekend outside the "Miracle of Birth Center" at the Minnesota State Fair.
