Introducing Emma Victery of the Chickasha FFA Chapter, Your 2021 Southwest 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 Emma Victery of the Chickasha FFA chapter representing the Southwest Area.

Victeryís project involved working on the family farm and ranch near Ninnekah.

I have really enjoyed working with my family and I do want to be involved in the cattle industry the rest of my life, she said.

Learning details of the dynamic family business ranked as one of the key surprises for Victery.

We do have a commercial business and I didnít realize not everyone uses the technology we use, she said, referring to the volume of artificial insemination the family business employs.

Some of my favorite FFA moments include winning the national beef production SAE award, she said.

Victery credits her family and ag advisors for helping her succed.

The main thing FFA has taught me is to get out of my comfort zone, she said.

I think it is very important for FFA to encourage young members to get out of their comfort zone, giving speeches and getting involved in other projects, she said.

Future plans call for Victery to attend Eastern Oklahoma State College, and Oklahoma State University, participating on the meats judging team at both institutions.

She eventually wants to become a veterinarian specializing in cattle reproduction, return home and continue working with her familyís cattle business.
