I grew with

Sal Parra Jr. Class 46

Director of farming for Burford Ranch, a multi- generational family operation that grows nuts, vegetables and row crops on 10,000 acres.

“The Ag Leadership Program helped me become a more engaged leader, contributing to local boards and issues in agriculture. After commencing, I became very involved in our industry – diversifying and getting involved in groups I previously had not interacted with, such as Western Growers. “Ag Leadership is a catalyst and catapults you to a new level of understanding yourself and your impact. It’s an investment in you, your company and the organizations you care about. “Individuals who truly immerse themselves in the program become tremendous leaders. I challenge anyone to look for any other leadership development program or graduate degree that does what Ag Leadership does. You will not find it.”

Since 1970, more than 1,400 California Agricultural Leadership Program fellows have become lifelong leaders who individually and collectively act as a catalyst for a vibrant agricultural community and make a significant difference in the agricultural industry, their businesses, communities and families.
