Meet Your 2019 Central Area Star in Agricultural Placement, Seth McCaa of Elmore City - Pernell FFA


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 Agricultural Placement for 2019. One Star Finalist featured in the coming days from each of the categories, will be named the State Star Award Winner during the Oklahoma State FFA Convention coming up April 30 - May 1, 2019 in Oklahoma City.


Today, we continue our coverage with this years Central Area Star in Agriculture Placement, Seth McCaa of the Elmore City - Pernell FFA Chapter. Seth is recognized for his work while employed at Coppin Ranch Hand Services, working for farmers and ranchers in his area. Seth is also employed by Diamond R Ranch, a multimillion-dollar race horse operation located in Pauls Valley. At his jobs, Seth works daily with livestock and especially horses.


I grew up riding horses my entire life. My dad was a horse trainer, Seth said, remembering how he first became interested in the equine industry. So, the equine industry is something that Ive been involved in forever and I knew immediately when I wanted to get a job - I wanted it to be with horses. Its something Im very passionate about.


In addition to caring for livestock and tending to daily tasks such as feeding and general husbandry, he has undergone specialized training in order to perform more advanced duties including embryo transfers and specimen collection. Seth says the skills and knowledge he has picked up on the job have helped him to be successful in his FFA career as well, and vice versa. Throughout high school, he has excelled in public speaking events and proficiency contests among other things.

FFA has been an organization thats been near and dear to my heart. I recognize the character qualities that Ive gotten from it, so I want my kids to experience that too, he said. I know all the skills learned performing these daily tasks will carry with me.


After graduation, Seth plans to attend university though he remains undecided at this point where he will choose to go and what area he will choose to study. What he is certain about however, is that his future will include heavy involvement in the equine industry.
