Introducing Kristian Thralls of the Calera FFA Chapter, Your 2021 Southeast Area Star in Ag ProductionFri, 23 Apr 2021 08:29:13 CDT
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 Kristian Thralls of the Calera FFA chapter representing the Southeast Area.
Wheat and sheep production are the main parts of Thrallís Ag Production project on his familyís third generation farm.
Some of the big things I learned are how to plant the crops and run the machinery, as well as care for the lambs, Thralls said.
He noted the major impact of weather on agriculture.
The February brutal cold hurt a lot of people, but we came out okay, he said.
One of my biggest FFA memories occurred when he showed sheep at OYE.
FFA has taught me about hard work and leadership, Thralls said.
My family has grown and has a great passion for FFA, he said.
Thralls plans to attend Southeastern Oklahoma State University and finishing at Oklahoma State University, majoring in agricultural education.
Eventually he wants to return to the family farm.
