Introducing Joel Pecha of the Timberlake FFA Chapter, Your 2021 Northwest Area Star in Ag Placement


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 Placement 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 Placement competitor Joel Pecha of the Timberlake FFA chapter representing the Northwest Area.

For Joel Pecha, finding a good fit for his Ag Placement project was as simple as staying home on the family ranch.

I am the seventh generation on our farm, he said.

The family farm and ranch grow wheat, corn, grain sorghum and sesame. They also have a 300 head beef cow herd.

I have worked here every day since I was young, he said.

I have learned how to manage an operation, how to fix stuff, market cattle and all aspects of the farm and ranch, he said.

My dad has taught me everything I need to know, Pecha said.

I plan on returning to the farm, he added.

His FFA career has included everything from showing cattle to speech contests.

Besides working on the farm and ranch, FFA has been the biggest part of my life, he said.

FFA has opened my eyes to many opportunities, he said.

I plan on attending NOC at Tonkawa, get on the livestock judging team and then pursuing a degree in animal science at Oklahoma State, he said.
