Mackenzie – Grain Production – Entrepreneurship/Placement
Mackenzie Henning, a member of the Jackson County Central FFA Chapter in Minnesota, works for an independent seed corn business in her community. Starting as an intern before becoming an employee, she was responsible for hand detasseling seed corn and working in the warehouse. The goal of detasseling is to remove all female tassels from the field of seed corn to allow for cross pollination. Henning is also involved in roguing, or removing off-types from the field.
Her parents are Ann and Brad and her FFA advisors are Laura Bidne, Larry Christopher, and Jeff Voss.
