Introducing Caitlyn Mack of the Drummond FFA Chapter, Your 2021 Northwest Area Star in Ag Production


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 Caitlyn Mack of the Drummond FFA chapter representing the Northwest Area.

Mackís project is managing 220 acres of her own farmland as well as working on her family farm and ranch near Drummond.

Farming and ranching with her family is a passion for Caitlyn Mack,

I wanted to really show that I truly care about production ag and feeding the world, Mack said.

All of the challenges Mother Nature gives you also shows you how to work and come up with solutions, Mack said.

She credits her family and ag teacher for supporting her.

One of my favorite FFA moments was making it to state FFA Creed contest finals as a freshman, she said.

FFA has taught me hard work pays off, she said.

You donít want to let opportunities pass you by, she said.

The Covid pandemic emphasized the importance of agriculture.

Farmers couldnít just stop checking cattle, Mack said.

Mack plans to attend Oklahoma State University majoring in animal science and/or agricultural education while continuing to farm with her family.
