Over the past 32 years, we have taken hundred of thou-

sands of photos of you kids out there in the show arenas. The hair styles have changed. That’s OK. The body styles of your show animals have changed. That’s OK. Show equipment and accessories have changed. Even, that’s OK. But, the one thing that has been changing over the years that’s not OK is the eyes. When Ag Youth Magazine photographers are in the ring that’s what we’re looking for. We’re not trying to shoot the winning animals; we’re shooting the kids with the winning attitudes. And, that starts with eyes up, watching the judge. As I focus on an exhibitor, I give them a grace period in which to make eye contact with the judge. If they’re just setting up in line, etc., that’s going to take longer. But, if they’re

By Shawn Hilliary, Elgin FFA Reporter A program can only be as strong as the leaders behind it. The Elgin FFA Officer team recently spent three days in Fair Oaks, Okla., developing skills to become better leaders as well as plan and organize the 2019-2020 year for the Elgin FFA Chapter. Through team bonding and goal setting activities the officers believe they will be able to develop a “brand” for the Elgin FFA Chapter. At seven o’clock on Monday Morning the officers loaded up in the Ag trucks and headed off to a location which was a mystery. The first segment of their retreat ended up at the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry. While at the department they toured the lab and learned about the many jobs that are housed in the facility. During their time at ODAFF they met with Meriruth Cohenour, Market Development Director, to learn about “Made in Oklahoma” products and see what all Oklahoma Agriculture has to offer. “I would have never guessed that Oklahoma Agriculture has so much more to offer than just cattle and wheat.” said Chapter Sentinel Gavin Hollars. Hollars feels that his time at

the department will better help him be able to advocate for not only Oklahoma agriculture but agriculture as a whole. From Oklahoma City, the officers headed to their next “top secret” stop for lunch. They had the pleasure of eating with some Oklahoma FFA celebrities at “Stillwater’s Jumpin’ Little Juke Joint”: Eskimo Joes with State FFA Executive Secretary Mr. Trevor Lucas, State FFA Advisor Mr. Jack Statts, and Southwest Area Program Specialist Mr. Kurt Murray. Hope Cunningham, Elgin FFA Chapter Vice President, tells us, “If ever an issue or question were to arise, it is important that we keep in contact with our state’s leaders.” After lunch, they were able to get a “behind the scenes” tour of CareerTech from Oklahoma FFA Executive Secretary, Trevor Lucas. Officers were able to see where every sheet of paper and signage that Oklahoma FFA mails, uses at camp, or hangs at convention is printed. They also had the opportunity to see the state of the art studio where the “State Stars” do their interviews. Oklahoma Department of CareerTech State Director, Dr. Marcie Mack, gave them a personal tour of the facilities.

The Elgin FFA Chapter Officer Team recently went on their annual officer retreat to develop a chapter “brand” for the new school year.

“The FFA is a huge part of my life and I believe that going to CareerTech and speaking with the state staff will help me better my potential in the organization,” said Blakley Howard, Elgin FFA Chapter Treasurer. After leaving Stillwater, officers found themselves at the “Ziegenhaus House” in Fair Oaks, OK, just outside of Catoosa. “Ziegenhaus” means Goat House in German, and once officers got there they figured out why. The house was decorated head-to-toe with sophisticated paintings of goats going about their lives on the farm. While at the house officers planned the entire year for the Elgin FFA chapter, and worked on developing the leadership skills necessary to execute the exciting year. A team should always work well together. With that being said, officers participated in several “team-bonding” activities while on retreat. On day two officers went to The Gathering Place in Tulsa, where they engaged in an enormous scavenger hunt. While navigating through the giant park they were able to recognize each other’s strengths and weaknesses which helped them better complete each of the tasks. Jacque Barfield, Elgin FFA Chapter Secretary, tells us “I enjoyed going to The Gathering Place because it helped me face my fear of heights. I think it was an excellent place to go for retreat because it made all of us help and motivate each other. As a team we have to always work together and hold each other accountable to follow through with each of our responsibilities and if one starts to fall behind, it is our job to motivate them to accomplish their duties.” The Elgin FFA officers have planned an exciting year for the members of the Elgin FFA Chapter. This year members will find that everything they do, they will do for a purpose. Whether it be to better the Elgin community, boost self-confidence, or to gain the skills necessary to be successful in their lives and careers, officers have thoroughly “branded” the Elgin FFA Chapter as a positive place for any student to call home. agyouth.com

HOOK N CHASE By L. W. Peck

The cool thing about going afield is that it is easy. Easy you may say! No way, going hunting is hard! Believe it or not, going hunting is not only easy but very simple. We have made it hard. Getting ready for fall hunting doesn’t require any of the following. Remember, I said “Does Not.” You do not have to run to Oklahoma City to visit Cabela’s and Bass Pro ten times. You will not need to spend countless hours online ordering what you need. You will not need to spend day and night preparing a place to hunt or feed deer etc. You do not need the newest, fastest, camoish (if that’s a word) 4-wheeler to go hunting. You sure don’t need notification on your cell device of the best conditions to go hunting. That’s a lot of what you don’t need! Here are more items that successful cave men hunters (the first documented hunters) didn’t have… Waterproof Boots Silent pants Hand warmers Scent removal Thermal wear Hunting video games Big game calls Alive looking decoys Mojo duck decoys Ground Blinds Tree stands Trail cameras (one million different kinds) 6 pocket hunting pants Upland pants Turkey pants Barrier pants Scent lock pants, Fleece pants Under Armour Bow Pants (really!) Full zip jacket Extreme wading jackets (just how deep is the water?) Lets’ not even mention the headgear, boot style or gloves. Exactly, what is an Artic Shield Heat Echo Shooting Glove? Obviously, it’s not a jersey or leather glove. Give me a break. That’s a lot of work to just get dressed to go hunting. Page 18 - October 2019

Folks, it’s not that hard. Here are a few basics that you nneed to know. You need a place to hunt, public or private. A gun-open sites is fine. A Red Dot 3 X 30 $5000 Scope is not a requirement. A bullet (in my case, several bullets). Hunter safety card and license. Clothes. Your chore clothes will work. Tell someone where you will hunt and when you will return. Orange hat and vest if deer season. Now, GO! Game of all kinds are like you. They eat, they sleep, they water, they relax, and they roam around only to repeat the above daily. Just like you get out of bed, go into the kitchen, go off to work all day, back to the kitchen, and back to bed. Repeat. Daily. Wildlife are creatures of habit. It’s not hard. Remember the basics. Hunt into the wind. If the wind is blowing in your face, there is no need to worry about scent. Shoot close, the closer the target, the easier. You can brag about your 400 yard shot to your buddies later, 50 yards is easier. Have fun. Take a friend. BE QUIET! Wouldn’t it bother you if someone slams a car door in your bedroom or yells? Think! Wild game are animals, like you. They eat a lot before a bad storm; they lie in during a blowing snow and then go out to eat after a storm passes. Take gun & bullet. The best trophy is full day of hunting! LET’S GO! (I hope I’m not banned at Cabela’s or Bass Pro.)

TRENTON’S POST Hi Guys! It’s me, Trenton, coming to you just after I got home from going to the Kansas State Fair livestock show. I had a lot of fun seeing good stock. Even better, I got to see my friends. Livestock shows are about competing, winning, losing, fitting animals and having fun. It is also about making friends. Over the last few years, I have traveled to many places and met a lot of friends. Making friends at livestock shows is important because it helps pass the time, helps if you need someone to help you show and you’ll always have someone to play football in the showring with. I’ve been thinking about what it takes to be a good stock show friend. First, Be Kind because whether you win or lose you can still be kind. The way you treat people is the way they will treat you. Second, celebrate with your friends when you win and be encouraging when they are not having such bueno day in the ring. And, third, don’t forget to have fun but don’t forget to work hard first. At my house, the motto is work hard and then play hard. As I have traveled around the states, here are some of the few friends I have. It doesn’t matter how old or how young your friends are; you can still have fun. See you down the road! Peace!

Hey Papa! friend? ow

Students prepare their turtles for the turtle races at the 2019 Elgin FFA Ice Cream Social. This year marked the 40th Anniversary of the event and included an open house for the new Ag Building. By Shawn Hilliary, Elgin FFA Reporter I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. The Elgin FFA Chapter recently hosted the annual Elgin FFA Ice Cream Social. It was an exciting evening of fellowship among students, rekindling relationships of Elgin FFA alumni, and enjoying delicious homemade ice cream. This year’s Ice Cream Social was different than most as it was the fortieth anniversary of the very first Elgin FFA Ice Cream Social. The purpose of the first Ice Cream Social was to hold an open house for the new Ag Building in 1979. Forty years later, the Elgin FFA Chapter held the official open house for the new state-of-the-art Agricultural Education Building. Elgin FFA President, Brook Langford, began the evening by giving the welcome, followed by the singing of the National Anthem by Elgin FFA Junior Bria Martin. Mr. Nate Meraz, Elgin Public Schools superintendent, then introduced the new faculty and staff members joining Elgin Schools this year. The evening continued with face painting, turtle races and a bounce house for the children. Tours of the new Ag Building continued into the evening hours. Among the large crowd of attendees were several Elgin FFA Alumni who made a long journey to see the new facilities. Leslie (Ballou) Holland, former State FFA officer from Elgin, made the trip from Texas to attend the open house. Former State FFA Officers Amber (Moser) McNeil and Kelby Corbett were also in attendance. Mr. Vince McGolden, Mr. Charles Spencer, and Mr. Jerry Renshaw, all former Elgin Ag Teachers, were present for the evenings events. As the evening drew to a close, former Elgin FFA members shared stories of the past with current members. The Elgin FFA Chapter is thankful for the support of the Elgin community and is already anticipating next year’s event. Page 24 - October 2019

, s y u G Hey Fairs, Fairs, and more Fairs. What a busy time of the year going from your county fair, then to Oklahoma State Fair, THEN to Tulsa can really put the stress on you. If you think about it, not only are you stressing about the final touches before showtime, or maybe even stressing about getting your homework done; your animals can get pretty stressed as well. I’m going to share with you how I keep my stress as well as my animals at a manageable level. One thing that probably stresses me out the most is feeding. What your animal is eating is so important. If you’re animals aren’t eating enough they are going to be to small and won’t be show ready on the big day. On the other hand, if your animals are eating to much they either won’t make weight or simply might just have to much condition, or fat. If you’re animals aren’t eating good, stress is most likely one of the factors. If this happens to you, try giving them an additive or paste to help with those problems. Another option is to ask questions or for help from someone with more knowledge to help figure out what is wrong. Another thing I tend to worry about is homework. Being gone for a whole week and coming back to school hoping you taught yourself correctly can stress a girl out. Especially being a student athlete and trying to keep a 4.0. Some things I’ve learned over the years is that some teachers can be very different from others. Some expect you to have learned everything and be ready to test when you get back; however, some can be the nicest people ever. You just kinda have to get to know your teacher and know what they want out of you. (110%) See y’all at Tulsa!! Page 26 - October 2019

National FFA Organization Announces Record Student Membership of More Than

700,000

The National FFA Organization is answering the need for more highly skilled graduates to fill job openings in the field of agriculture, and nowhere is this more evident than in the organization’s growing membership. Today, the organization announced a record-high student membership of 700,170, up from 669,989 in 2018. The top six student membership states are Texas, California, Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio and Missouri. Interest in FFA and agricultural education continues to grow as membership continues to increase. This year, the organization has more than 100,000 Latino members, 45 percent of the membership is female with 52 percent of the membership being male. Females hold more than 50 percent of the leadership positions. FFA chapters can be found in 24 of the 25 largest U.S. cities. “FFA is providing future leaders, and our membership growth reflects continued enthusiasm for agriculture as well as agricultural education,” National FFA Organization CEO Mark Poeschl said. “FFA prepares our student members for careers in agriculture while working to ensure the security of our country’s food, fiber and natural resources systems for years to come. Through real-world experiences, agriculture educators are helping students develop the technical knowledge, skills and problem-solving capabilities to be the industry’s leaders of tomorrow.” Page 28 - October 2019

By Baylee Brown, Mulhall-Orlando FFA Reporter The Mulhall-Orlando FFA Chapter has been busy starting their school year off with many activities involving chapter members and their community. At the end of July, the officer team went on a trip to Tahlequah, Oklahoma, to float the Illinois River. While spending time together on this trip they were able to begin planning some of the activities they would like to do in the upcoming school year. This year the M-O FFA officer team wanted to make sure new members in eighth grade were excited to be joining such an awesome organization. They started a mentor program in which each officer was assigned one or two new members to encourage and support throughout the school year. On August 23 and 24, FFA and 4-H members gathered at the Mulhall-Orlando Fair Barn to hold their annual fall fair. This year marked 50 years for the event and to celebrate, the local fair board along with the support of many sponsors and volunteers worked hard to make it a special occasion. Matching t-shirts for livestock exhibitors, belt buckles for awards, and a photo backdrop all made this event one to remember. On Friday, August 23, the fair started with the judging of the open class, HCE, 4-H, FFA, and Crop exhibits. That evening, the carnival games put on by the high school students were open to the community. The FFA played a carnival game called “Are You Smarter than an Ag Student” with elementary students to teach them new things about animals and agricultural topics. The livestock show and livestock judging competition was held on Saturday, August 24. The judge for the livestock show was Matthew Walta of Kingfisher. Awards were given for Grand and Reserve in each species as well as showmanship in junior and senior age divisions. Page 48 - October 2019

During the weekend of the fair, the FFA chapter started their first community service project of the school year. They held a water and Gatorade drive to collect donations for the Mulhall and Orlando Fire Departments. At the end of the week they had received 60 cases of water to donate. On August 31, the M-O FFA members held a Back-to-School Bash at Ultimate Air in Stillwater. Nineteen members attended this event and had a blast spending time together and getting to know new

members. Three members Sydney Johnson, Charley Johnson, and Baylee Brown participated in the National Junior Swine Association Southwest Regional Judging Contest. They were eighth place intermediate team and Baylee Brown was eighth place individual. The M-O FFA Chapter is very excited to attend more activities this year. The new officer team and their fellow FFA members can’t wait to get this year in full swing.

On Sept. 12, twenty-five special needs students from the surrounding area, and 75 FFA and 4-H volunteers from across Oklahoma, came together for friendship, purple banners and Gold Star memories.

Livestock shows are a staple of Oklahoma. The bond between animals and students, especially children, is an illuminating experience. Grand champion smiles were especially radiating from the Chisholm Trail Expo Center in Enid, Okla. during the second annual Gold Star Classic-AFR Special Needs Livestock Show. On Sept. 12, twenty-five special needs students from the surrounding area, and 75 FFA and 4-H volunteers from across Oklahoma, came together for friendship, purple banners and Gold Star memories. Each Gold Star participant was paired with two youth volunteers who helped guide the students throughout the day. “It filled me with great pride,” Sue

Page 56 - October 2019

Hileman, Burns Flat-Dill City School, Special Olympics coach, said. “Just to see all the caring that is out there, and those students with special needs being spotlighted is pretty awesome.” The Gold Star Classic allows Oklahoma students with special needs the opportunity to interact with livestock animals in a petting farm environment prior to the livestock show. This year’s Petting Farm featured a horse, a calf, a baby goat, a baby sheep and a pig. For the livestock show portion, Gold Star participants exhibited a lamb or goat, along with their show buddies, in the show ring. This year’s Gold Star Classic judge, Marty Jones, interacted with each Gold Star participant and asked can-

did questions to help the audience learn more about each participant’s unique personality. Each Gold Star participant was awarded a gold medallion, a banner and a stuffed animal to remember this special day, as well as photos expressing their golden smiles. “This is truly one of the best youth events in my opinion,” Vanessa Wiebe, AFR/OFU Cooperative Youth Coordinator, said. “The radiant smiles saw throughout the day from the Gold Star participants and our youth volunteers is just one reason why this event is such a moving experience.” Wiebe said this event allows youth to showcase their passion for livestock and helps grow service and leadership.

ing AFR youth from across the state. Council members participate in service projects throughout the year and assist in planning many AFR Youth Program activities. Each Council member will attend multiple events and will act as mentors for younger Oklahoma youth. “This is a highly competitive and well-renowned program,” Wiebe said. “These students invest a lot of time into our organization and we want them to have the best possible experience. To become a Youth Advisory Council member, a student or immediate family member must be an AFR Insurance policyholder and have attended a Senior Leadership Summit prior to the year applying. Students complete an application at Summit and candidates are required to interview and present a three-minute speech during Summit.
