Meet the National Proficiency Winner in Diversified Livestock- Placement- Kassandra Pfeiffer of Mulhall-OrlandoSat, 23 Oct 2010 7:00:22 CDT
For the second year in a row, Oklahoma had a dominating presence in the National Proficiency Awards that are selected and presented at the National FFA Convention each fall. In 2009, Oklahoma had the most National Finalists who competed in Indianapolis- and the most National Winners. That was repeated in 2010, as Oklahoma had a total of 22 National Finalists in the 47 Proficiency Award areas- and eight of those young men and ladies were declared the National winner in their category. California and Illinois were each able to claim five National Proficiency awards apiece, while Georgia, Nebraska and Wisconsin managed three apiece.
The 2010 National Proficiency Award in Diversified livestock production - placement is Kassandra Pfeiffer of the Mulhall- Orlando FFA Chapter. Kass is a repeat National Proficiency Award winner, having won in 2009 in the Beef Production- Placement category.

Kassandra Pfeiffer’s parents purchased her first cow two weeks before she was born. Ever since her early start in the livestock industry, the Mulhall-Orlando FFA member has continued working on her family’s cattle and swine ranch in Oklahoma. Learning about embryo transfer and vaccination programs are important to her family’s success in the competitive livestock industry.
