Editorial Got to Love the County Fair!

Growing up in Custer County, Oklahoma, I can only remem-

ber a few county fairs. At that time, we would load up from the county and head straight to the Oklahoma State Fair in Oklahoma City. I also remember how it was always HOT! Great memories are made at the county. Some of the greatest shows start with the word “The.” The Local, The County, The City. It’s fair time all over the country. My ag teacher, Darrell Moser, always said that you can’t do anything about the weather. So, let’s go to “The Show.” Hot or not.

I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service and my health to better living, for my club, my community, my country and my world. While 4-H’ers from across the state can recite the 4-H pledge at the drop of a hat, club members in Cherokee County have been living it and putting it to work in the wake of devastating flooding in their area. While at 4-H summer camp recently, Cherokee County 4-H president Clayton Wallace came up with the idea of a challenge to raise $500 to help flooding victims Page 8 - September

in the area. The campers all jumped on board, and within the week at camp, the group raised $692. An additional $550 was dropped o at the Cherokee County Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension office, for a total of $1,242 in cash, along with more than $500 worth of in-kind donations. Carl Wallace, 4-H educator and county Extension director in the Cherokee County OSU Cooperative Extension o ce, said he is proud of the efforts club members put into this opportunity to help others. “We had 107 kids participating in the summer camp, and they were excited about the challenge Clayton put out for them,” Carl Wallace said. “Because of their efforts, they got to put a pie in Clayton’s face. But even more than that, by giving to others, they learn to be compassionate for one another.” The club members were supplied with a list of the most-needed items and they used the donated money to purchase bananas, charcoal, deodorant, ibuprofen, towels, bug spray, box knives, shampoo, Neosporin, peanut butter, band aids, sunscreen and other immediate essentials. The in-kind donations included cleaning supplies, bottled water and nonperishable food items. All of these items will help flooding victims in Fort Gibson, Oklahoma and Okay, Oklahoma. “It feels great helping other people. I’m sitting here, not really affected by the floods, but just a few miles down the road there are people who have lost everything,” Clayton Wallace said. “4-H is about helping others, doing our part to ‘make the best better’ and creating great citizens and the leaders of tomorrow.” Chloe Silka also is a 4-H’er in Cherokee County who helped raise money for those affected by the floods. “It’s really nice to know that we can help people through some of the toughest times of their lives. These people have lost everything and we’re playing a small role in helping them get back to normal. I could never have organized a fundraiser like this on my own, so it just shows how 4-H brings people together for greater reasons. When people come together, so much can be accomplished that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.” Carl Wallace said the flooding in the Fort Gibson area is beyond anything he has ever seen. “I’ve never seen water even remotely close to the areas that were covered in 5 or 6 feet of water,” he said. “It’s crazy, but I’m glad my club members stepped up to help. I’m proud of all of them.”

By Shawn Hilliary, Elgin FFA Reporter “Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to do, living to serve.” The FFA Motto is a true representation of a servant’s heart. This summer four Elgin FFA members traveled to our nation’s capital for the Washington Leadership Conference. Each year Oklahoma FFA sends members to the premier leadership conference. The conference curriculum is divided into four areas: ME, WE, DO, SERVE. Elgin FFA President Brook Langford attended WLC and tells us that the “ME” day of the conference focused on growing as a leader. “The biggest takeaway from the ‘ME’ day is to do what you can, with whatever you have, wherever you are, no matter the circumstances.” said Langford. She tells us the

entire day reminded her that going out of your way to make someone happy is always worth it, and whether it be to please just one person or five hundred people as a leader it is important to keep a positive attitude. Langford stated “You may serve on a team but a team is only as successful as the leaders within it. As the chapter president I feel as though the ‘ME’ day will help me to better serve my chapter.” “The ‘WE’ day focuses on diversity. It helped us see that everyone is important,” says Hope Cunningham, Elgin FFA Vice President. She went on to explain, “There are many different kinds of diversity, whether they be race, gender, socioeconomic standing, etc. and how it was important to consider the diversity of our communities when forming our service projects.” Aries Miller is a senior at Elgin High School and was able to attend the Washington Leadership Conference this summer as well. Her favorite day of the conference was the “DO” day which was dedicated to setting and accomplishing reasonable goals for yourself, team, chapter, and community. Miller

enjoyed the “DO” day of camp because it will help her grow as a leader. “The ‘DO’ part of the conference taught me how to make goals and plans to help my community. It taught me how to make it an environment for those in need who don’t have much.” “Living to serve.” All FFA members live by these words. The final day of the conference was devoted to service. “The ‘SERVE’ day of WLC was inspiring. We spent the day filling bags of food for the local food bank in Washington, DC.” says Cunningham,“I was amazed at the impact we could have in such a short period of time when we all worked together.” She explained that the day helped her see that when you work as a team you can accomplish anything. “It showed me how easily I could impact my own community if I could get my chapter involved in a project” said Cunningham. Each of the girls agreed that WLC was one of the most inspiring weeks of their lives. The Elgin FFA Chapter is extremely proud to have leaders who are willing to spend over a week developing the skills to become a better leader.

HOOK N CHASE By L. W. Peck

It’s hard to remember that in the Spring of 2008 it didn’t rain much, and as summer rolled by, it rained even less. Same scenario in 2009-2010. A little rain and snow, but then, none. We thought that surely this dry spell was over and things would get better, but then historic drought hit in 2011 and 2012. Heat. No rain. Drought. Most of the ponds dried up. During that time, many of the ponds were cleaned out with dozers so that when it did rain again, they would be deep. And, it did rain again.

Page 14 - September

Especially this year. It rained and rained and rained, and finally all of our ponds are completely full again. Some of us restocked fish in 2013. Now in 2019, we are enjoying those restocking efforts and getting to share this awesome sport with a new generation of fishermen. Here’s a few pics of me, my grandson and my nephews enjoying the Peck Family stocking efforts. I’m bragging? You bet!

TRENTON’S POST Hi Guys. It’s me Trenton. Can you believe summer is over and school is back? This year I am starting a new school. I am starting the 5th grade at Peckham Public School. I am excited because I will get to play basketball at school and be in the same class as my friend Lindsay. Before we start talking about the school year, lets talk about summer. I am back from 4-H camp. At camp, we did a lot of activities My favorites were making cardboard boats that we tried to ride in the pool. Let’s just say cardboard and water don’t go together. I also liked making a catapult with my team. We had to launch them and we won! I also went to Just Kiddin’ Goat Camp with Mr. Stacy and his crew. Man, it was hot! I was excited to get to work on clipping and working legs. Anytime I can comb and glue, I’m a happy man! I did use too much glue on one of the legs and it took forever to wash out. Papa says to comb more, glue less. I guess I’m still learning. My other summer highlight was being at the Big 3 Field Days at Oklahoma State. I saw lots of my friends there. There were tons of kids there. Biggest crowd ever. We judged animals for three days. My favorite day to judge was sheep day. My least favorite day was cattle day. Apparently, me and the cattle officials do not agree on cattle. I am excited because my county fair is coming up. Dad says I am going to show IceMan, one of my retired goats. Mom thinks he is crazy! I need to work on some fair projects. I think I am going to work on a fishing craft of some sort and enter some food. We’ll see. Tulsa State Fair is coming. Get to work! See you down the road.

Hey Papa!

Why do you have to take a Hunter’s Safety Course? Because, you don’t want to get shot. By learning safety and hunting with good hunters, you will always be the safe hunter that everybody wants to go with.

Trenton, Do you have your safety on? Page 18 - September

, s y u G Hey This summer has been one of the best ones yet. It was filled with tons of firsts, lots of camps, and even a new school. From the last day of school to the beginning of July, the schedule was packed full of softball games, tournaments, and quite a few practices in between there. I’ve always heard my closest friends talk about the happiest place on earth, and I wasn’t sure why everyone referred to it like that. Now, I completely understand!! I got to experience OK FFA Alumni Camp for the first time this year, and it was most definitely the best experience! I met a ton of people and making salsa was pretty fun. I also got to go to State 4-H Roundup for the first time. Roundup is held in Stillwater for three days. On the first day, I learned some interesting things about Ag Robotics However, I don’t think robots are my thing. I also got the chance to take a Beef Quality Assurance Workshop and learned some important information about the beef industry. Summer ‘19 was also filled with tons and tons of softball. I am definitely not complaining. Heading to the field almost every Saturday at 5 was for sure the BEST part. ;) But thanks to Mother Nature, we only got to finish like four tournaments. It’s ok, though; I like the rain, too. This summer was one of the best yet from all the camps I attended, to starting a new adventure as a Canute Trojanett!! I hope y’all had the greatest time the past few months and good luck at all the upcoming shows. Page 22 - September

By Judy Poteet This summer was fun! Our 4-H and FFA advisor took us to a few dairy judging contests this past summer that were being held in the area. Agra hadn’t been to any judging contest in awhile, so we were all kind of new at it! We went to the Brown Swiss/Aryshire Dairy Field Day in Perkins, Oklahoma. Our 4-H team was 2nd place team and team member Braiden Waters place 3rd! The FFA team placed 3rd. We were all excited and hope to keep working on livestock and dairy judging. We hope to improve and get better in the future. Our 4-H team members were Mallory Poteet, Braiden Waters, and Tanner Waters and our FFA team members were Trey Poteet, Kendyl Lair and Carson Wright.

By Karden Robinson, Chattanooga FFA Reporter One of the things the Chattanooga FFA does to start the year is attend FFA Alumni Camp. It is quite the experience as an FFA member! Alumni camp is all about building leadership skills and learning to apply those skills in their homes and communities. Each year at camp, a highlight event is the Water Olympics. The whole camp gathers to compete against each other in various water games. There are also

many sessions which host amazing guest speakers such as Bill Cordes, founder of YOGOWYPI. YOGOWYPI stands for You Only Get Out What You Put In, a concept that was used at camp to teach FFA members to always put forth the effort to succeed. This year’s camp theme was “Envision, Enhance Your View.” FFA Members learned about effective communication strategies, which can enhance their view. FFA members were put to work to see how they could communicate clearly

with themselves and others. They also explored digital communication by discussing negative and positive aspects of using phones. And the last area was interpersonal communication, where FFA members learned how to actively participate in conversations. Chattanooga FFA ended Alumni Camp with tears from senior members, excitement for the new school year, and smiles as they headed back home! Living To Serve, and On to the next one.

By Baylee Brow, Mulhall-Orlando FFA Reporter Mulhall-Orlando FFA members have been living out the FFA motto this summer as they have spent time working hard to improve on their knowledge and skills in the area of livestock evaluation. In June, Baylee Brown, KayLea Taylor, Charley Johnson and Sydney Johnson attended the OSU Livestock Judging Camp. This camp was held in two sessions from June 1012 and June 13-15 and was put on by the OSU Livestock Judging Team, as well as members of the Animal Science Department faculty. During each session of the camp they evaluated classes of sheep, goats, cattle, and hogs. They then went over the class placings and prepared oral reasons for each class. The members learned a lot about preparing and presenting oral reasons on a class of livestock, as well as how to improve on their judging skills. In July, M-O FFA members gathered to have a workout to help prepare for OSU Big Three Field Days. Mark Johnson provided the members with three classes of heifers to evaluate and discuss.

On July 15, they attended the NOC Sheep field day in Tonkawa. The Junior FFA team consisting of Baylee Brown, Callen Oldenburg, KayLea Taylor and Hanna Schmidt placed first. Callen Oldenburg was first individual and Baylee Brown was sixth individual. The next few days from July 16-18, the members attended OSU Big 3 Field Days in Stillwater at the Totusek Arena. They evaluated sheep, cattle and hogs. Throughout the contest, the Junior FFA team was 7th on sheep and cattle and 5th on swine day. They ended the contest placing as the Overall Reserve Champion Junior FFA Team out of 233 teams competing. The Senior FFA Team that attended was made up of Paige Day, Karlie Thomason, Ashlyn Larman, Kaylee Shenold and Lane Blankinship. Casyn Larman also competed in the Junior FFA Division. Being involved in livestock evaluation teaches valuable lessons in decision making, giving oral reasons to support those decisions, and prioritizing desirable qualities in market and breeding livestock. The M-O FFA members had a great learning experience this summer working on livestock judging. The knowledge and skills they have gained will benefit them when they attend livestock judging competition.

FFA and 4-H members practice for the Big 3 Field Days with Mr. Jerry Brooks. Baylee Brown receives Best in Group Award at OSU Judging Camp.

Livestock Judging Team Sweeps Competitions (Top Photo) The 2018- 19 Connors State Livestock Judging Team has had one of the most successful runs in the school’s history. The team won six contest total, including sweeping the three Texas majors (Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Houston) and winning the last four contests of the year. We finished second overall in four contests, losing them by a total combined score of 10 points and in two of those instances by 1 point. We have a winning record over every team in the country and proved to be one of the most dominant teams of the year. National Championships for Shooting Sports (Second Photo) The Connors State shooting team participated in multiple spring competitions, including the ACUI Collegiate Clay Target Championships March 25-30 in San Antonio, Texas. The CSC team claimed two national championship titles at this contest- the Division 4 American All-Around National Champions and Division 4 High Overall National Champions. National Title for CSC Livestock (Third Photo) The Connors State Livestock Show team had a memorable year exhibiting CSC Born and Raised Cattle in 4 different states. The most unforgettable moment for our team concluded at the 2019 National Santa Gertrudis Show (Dixie Nationals) in Jackson, Mississippi. CSC Paula finished as Reserve Yearling Heifer, and CSC Crap-Shoot 11-7 was named the 2019 National Champion Santa Gertrudis Bull. We are looking forward to competing next year with another great set of calves. A Tradition in Excellence Judging Camp (Bottom Photo) Coach Nolan Hildebrand, graduated judging team members and current 2019-20 judging team members held their annual livestock judging camp June 7-9. Campers spent two days in the barn and classroom learning about evaluating livestock and integrating proper terminology in the reasons room. After a busy two days, they were allowed to apply these skills and compete in a mock contest put on the by the judging teams. Students were put to the test in judging five classes and giving reasons on three classes.

Throughout the week, the group toured local agricultural enterprises including American Plant Products, Oklahoma National Stockyards, Lopez Foods and the First Oklahoma Ag Network radio studio. Students also volunteered at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, learned how to communicate their agriculture story with the media and discovered how to share agriculture with their communities with the Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom program. The conference also allowed students to learn more about Farm Bureau’s work for agriculture and rural Oklahoma by visiting with OKFB President Rodd Moesel, Women’s Leadership Committee Chair Mignon Bolay and YF&R Chair Brent Haken. Participants of the conference are selected through an application process. The students selected represent some of Oklahoma’s most promising high school agriculturalists. The students attending the conference plan to pursue a wide variety of agricultural degrees including agribusiness, agricultural communications, animal science and pre-vet, and plant and soil sciences.

Vinita FFA Officer Retreat

Trip to Silver Dollar City: (Back Row) Brooklyn Phillippi, Cheyenne Round, Jayden Stevens, Brennan Round, McKinzie McCaffrey, Trevor Williams and Nate Osborn. (Front Row) Emily Lake, Savannah Lee, Jaqueline Bandy, Masyn Copeland, Tristan Stevens, Haley Lemke and Bryar Bailey By Tristan Stevens, Vinita FFA Reporter The first event for the 2019-20 Vinita FFA Officer teams was a two-day retreat to Branson, Missouri. On May 21, members of the senior and junior officer teams, accompanied by their advisor, Carolyn Piguet, departed on its first-ever, out-of-state retreat. The first activity on the agenda was a farm-to-fork meal cooked and served by the students of Branson’s College of the Ozarks. After the meal team members attended leadership training where

they discussed values, ethics and self assessment. Mrs. Piguet led them in parliamentary procedure practice, and team members set chapter goals. The following day the officer teams headed to Silver Dollar City where they rode rides, explored caves and shopped. Team members spent the day broken into small groups where they worked on team building skills and developing camaraderie. The retreat ended with a group dinner where members discussed project plans for the upcoming year. All members

have vowed that the team strength is a responsibility of each team member. Mrs. Piguet says to have a successful chapter you must have solid officer teams that can and will work together for the betterment of the chapter.

$10,000 ADDED CATTLE SHOWMANSHIP Yep! That is what it is! $10,000 added to Cattle Showmanship! Total prize money could easily reach $30,000! The World Champion Showmanship event will be held October 11, 12 and 13, at the Shawnee Event Center in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Showmanship judged by multiple judges in multiple preliminary rings with prize money in every round and the finals on Sunday, October 13. The judges will be focused entirely on Showmanship. In fact, there won’t even be a show where the cattle are placed. The event is open to students from fourth grade up through 2019 high school graduates. Divisions will be as follows: Division One – 4th and 5th grades; Division Two – 6th and 7th grades; Division Three – 8th and 9th grades, Division Four – 10th and 11th grades, Division Five – 12th grade and 2019 high school graduates. There will be at least one qualifying round and probably two with prize money in every round. The Finals will be on Sunday with more prize money. “For years adults have told kids how important showmanship is but then they put the big prize money on the cattle. Kids figure that out. I like what these folks are doing.” Says Jim Williams of V-8 Ranch. “Put your money where your mouth is!” Judges from multiple states have been invited and even though all are well known for their cattle judging skills, they all have for years emphasized showmanship. Every kid gets a shot. They will be placed on how well they show this time, this round, by this judge. Nothing before or after matters. The kids will be placed not because of who they are but simply because they are. Organizers have asked advice from many people before ever coming to a decision to do the show. But the point of no return was reached when a grand lady Ruth “Meme” Clay of Glenwood, Arkansas, after hearing the idea waggled her finger at one of the organizers summoning them to her nearby chair and said, “I am in for $5,000. You want the check now?” The Clay Family Trust enjoys helping kids. Page 52 - September

“Lots of folks give lip service, saying ‘oh yeah, we’ll help.’ Then that’s it. But “Meme” just hung it out there, kind of daring you not to do it now. You gotta love it!” said Jerry McPeak, who along with wife Veda and Jake and Kami Scott of Krebs Angus Ranch in Nebraska, are the organizers of the event. A few days later after the above occurrence was related to another group of show cattle enthusiasts, one gentleman lingered at the back until everyone was gone, then he stepped up and said, “We would like to finish that out with the other $5,000.” So, Brad and Lisa Romanchuk of Montgomery, Texas, are also major sponsors. The “Visit Shawnee” arm of the Shawnee Chamber is also pitching in big along with the Connors Agriculture Alumni, Sure Champ, and Pinpoint Monograms of OKC. The uniqueness of this World Champion Showmanship event has even more. In the effort to encourage all kids from all parts of the United States, show persons from more than 500 miles away may arrange to use a calf that is not theirs. Mr. Scott said, “This is an effort to allow kids from Idaho, California, Massachusetts, Florida, anywhere way off that would be faced with the physical difficulty of transporting a calf all the way to Oklahoma to compete.” The heart of the event is to offer an opportunity for every student to compete on the world level. Every kid to have a shot at being a World Champion. This show gives every kid a guaranteed opportunity to show in front of multiple judges who believe this showmanship is extraordinarily important and fair. The first ever show totally focused on showmanship! The preliminary round(s) depending on number of entries will be “blow and show”. The finals may be full fit done by contestants only helped by other contestants in their age group. This thing just keeps getting more ground-breaking, novel, unique and FAIR! Randy Gilbert of Tecumseh, Oklahoma, long-time supporter of 4-H and FFA and director for many youth boards jumped right on this idea to help. “If you really believe showing cattle helps raise kids, then you have got to love this innovative concept! They are just doing what other folks say we are supposed to be doing! Why wouldn’t every parent bring their kid to this?” So, On October 11, 12 and 13 you kids bring your parents to Shawnee, Oklahoma where the largest ever payout, for cattle showmanship will happen. Check-in will be Friday, October 11. The entry fee and stall fee total $125. The only place you can be declared a World Champion in Showmanship! For more information contact Jake Scott at 308-360-3223, Jerry McPeak at 918-490-0650, Jori Fast at 918-869-2948 or email worldchampionshowmanship@gmail.com.
