Introducing Kolby Kamp of the Laverne FFA Chapter, Your 2022 Northwest Area Star in Agricultural ProductionTue, 26 Apr 2022 06:53:20 CDT
During the month of April, the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and Oklahoma Farm Report is spotlighting the 17 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 Agricultural Production.
This week, we spotlight the five area stars in Agricultural Production in 2022.
One Star Finalist featured in the coming days from each of the categories, will be named the State Star Award Winner during the 96th Oklahoma State FFA Convention coming up May 3 and 4th in Tulsa, Okla.
This week, our coverage of the 2022 Oklahoma FFA Star Award Finalists continues with Agricultural Production competitor Kolby Kamp of the Laverne FFA chapter representing the Northwest Area.
Kamp's project involved his 30-head sow operation and his 40-head stocker calf operation.
"We raise show pigs and sell a few to some people," Kamp said.
Kamp shows the pigs that he raises. Last year, Kamp said he won Champion Chester barrow at OYE with a pig he raised.
"I have shown pigs since I was two and my grandparents on both sides have raised pigs on the commercial side mostly," Kamp said. "It has been fun being able to watch the pigs grow up from day one all the way to the end."
Kamp is grateful for the help of his parents and grandparents during his project.
Winning the FFA creed as a freshman at the OPSU Interscholastic contest is one of Kamp's favorite FFA memories.
"After graduating, I am going to go to Northwestern Oklahoma State University," Kamp said. "I would still like to be involved in the show pig industry and keep raising the pigs. After graduating from there I would like to go back and keep raising show pigs and grow my stocker calf operation."
Kamp plans to pursue a degree in an ag business and come back to his family farm after graduation.
