Introducing Parker Buoy of the Meeker FFA Chapter, Your 2021 Central Area Star in Ag ProductionMon, 26 Apr 2021 08:32:14 CDT
During the month of April, the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and Oklahoma Farm Report has been 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 finalize our spotlight of the five area stars in Ag Production for 2021.
One Star Finalist featured during April 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 wraps up with Ag Production competitor Parker Buoy of the Meeker FFA chapter representing the Central Area.
Buoy's project focused on a cow/calf herd with show heifers.
His family has deep roots in the area, dating to the 1889 Land Run.
Ever since then we have been involved with cattle, he said.
Feeding cattle and working with dad are highlights of Buoy's FFA and ag production career.
It gives me a chance to spend time with dad and ask him questions, Buoy said.
Buoy plans to attend Oklahoma State University majoring in agribusiness.
After graduation, Buoy has several options including returning to the family cattle business or going into construction or retail meat sales with one of his brothers.
FFA is a second family for Buoy, as he credits FFA with preparing him for the real world, teaching him responsibility and hard work.
