During the month of April, the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and Oklahoma Farm Report is spotlighting the twenty Area Stars of Oklahoma FFA that are among the highest achievers in the organization.
The stars come from the five areas in four categories- Star in Ag Placement, Star in Agriscience, Star in Agribusiness and Star in Production Agriculture.
This week, we spotlight the five area stars in Ag Production for 2021.
One Star Finalist featured in the coming days from each of the categories, will be named the State Star Award Winner during the 95th Oklahoma State FFA Convention coming up April 27, and 28th in Oklahoma City.
This week, our coverage of the 2021 Oklahoma FFA Star Award Finalists continues with Ag Production competitor Shaylee Maddox of the Thomas Fay Custer FFA chapter representing the Southwest Area.
Maddox’s project focused on producing registered Southdown sheep on her family farm.
Maddox credits her family for helping with the project and meeting many great people around the country.
Her FFA career has spanned a variety of activities including livestock showing, public speaking and livestock judging.
Attending livestock shows and visiting with other FFA members is a highlight for Maddox.
FFA has moved Maddox out of her comfort zone and made connections while having fun with other FFA members.
Maddox has narrowed her college choices to three options, focusing on studying agribusiness and ag communications.
Upon graduation she wants to continue raising sheep on her family farm.
