Thu, 22 Apr 2021 08:32:31 CDT

Introducing Bailie Runner of the Oolagah FFA Chapter, Your 2021 Northeast Area Star in Ag Production 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 Bailie Runner of the Oolagah FFA chapter representing the Northeast Area.

Pork and cattle production are the focus for Runner's Ag Production project.

I have one Berkshire sow that I have raised four litters of pigs consisting of Berkshire and crossbred pigs, Runner said.

The cattle are a mixture of registered Angus, Maine-Anjou, Hereford and commercial heifers.

Runner has been involved in livestock production since she was a child and credits her ag teacher and parents for support and inspiration.

Keeping up on herd health and management is a big factor for profitability, she said.

Runner has worked hard throughout her FFA career, competing at the national level in Agri science and ag issues, as well as showing livestock.

Winning the ag issues contest is one of Runner's favorite FFA memories.

FFA has taught me leadership and time management skills that I will need to succeed in life, Runner said.

Runner's future calls for her to attend college studying agricultural education and play collegiate softball.

She eventually wants to return to the home farm and ranch.
