Larry and I went back to college! And boy, did we learn a

lot. We were honored to be a company selected to work with a great marketing team at Oklahoma State University. With a few Zoom meetings and lots of research on their part, they presented us a very educational marketing plan. Yes, we are taking their advice to heart. Hint, we learned QR codes are a real thing in marketing. Many of their suggestions will be put into play during the summer. Ag Youth Magazine was created with the spirit of the young people in agriculture. When Larry was teaching ag and I was a 4-H agent, it was easy to glean ideas as we interacted with our youth. Our marketing team reminded us we need to always include the younger viewpoint in our Ag Youth activities. Thanks, Blair Cupps, Sydney Trainor and Brandy DeVous. They are graduating in May, and we're have no doubt they will be making an impact.

Reprinted from Oklahoma Farm Report On Friday, April 8, the Oklahoma Cattlewomen’s beef advocacy junior contest took place in El Reno, Okla. In two interviews, contestants from grades 5th-12th were required to explain beef production, present the beef community in a positive manner, know the nutritional benefits of beef, and more. Morley Griffith of the Dale FFA Chapter is senior champion beef advocate of the contest. During Griffith’s winning interview, she said the has been involved in the cattle industry since the age of four. Griffith said her involvement started in a show program, but as she has grown older, her dad and family have involved her in their registered commercial cow/calf operation.

“I deem myself the herd manager, where I am in charge of vaccine protocols and making breed decisions for our cow/calf operation,” Griffith said. Her family’s cow/calf operation, Griffith said, feeds directly back into their show program, where she has been able to see bred and owned cattle in the show ring be successful. It is a really rewarding experience, she added. Griffith said she serves on the Oklahoma Junior Cattleman’s board and is the president of the Oklahoma Club Calf Association. “I believe in the beef industry and what it does for youth, so I am definitely proud to be a part of it,” Griffith said.

Kellyville FFA was recognized for the highest monetary contribution in the FFA Hunger Challenge

A total of $8,370.84 and 322 hogs were donated to the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s Pork for Packs program as part of the 2021-2022 Oklahoma FFA Hunger Challenge. Pork for Packs – a collaboration between the OKFB Foundation for Agriculture, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma – provides protein sticks for chronically hungry children in Oklahoma. The protein sticks are included in food-filled backpacks given to students to eat during weekends and holidays, when meals at school are not available. “We are thankful for the students who donated animals and helped their chapters raise money for the Pork for Packs program,” said David VonTungeln, OKFB Foundation for Agriculture president. “These donations help ensure Oklahoma children have access to a nutritious protein source when school is not in session.” The FFA Hunger Challenge encourages students to donate their animals to the program during the Tulsa State Fair and the Oklahoma Youth Expo. Chapters can also make cash contributions through adding a quarter to the price of each fundraising product sold throughout the year. This year, Kellyville FFA – one of 142 participating chapters – was recognized as the FFA chapter with the highest monetary contribution, donating $1,500 to the program. For more information about Pork for Packs or the FFA Hunger Challenge, contact Holly Carroll at (405) 523-2300. Page 12 - SUMMER 2022

Hey guys! It's me, Trenton. It's summer. It's time to go fishing. It's time to get serious. It's time to catch that 8-pounder I've been waiting on for over a year! This time I'm going for him with the 8-inch Magdraft by Megabass. I have caught an 8.3 channel cat on a plug this summer. Figure that. But, I'm after that 8-pound black bass. My school went on a fishing trip to a giant pond. This pond was huge. First I started to throw an A rig. I caught a 1.5 pounder. Then I put on the Magdraft and caught a 4 pounder. This is going to be a busy summer between fishing, AAU basketball, 4-H Camp, 4-H Roundup, and teaching a fishing clinic for the Washita County 4-H. I have started to play travel basketball this year. It's been very fun to go and play at different places. So far we have gone to different parts of OKC. We're suppose to go to Chicago, Dallas and a few other places. I'm really exited. With that, we still have to remember our livestock. It's that time to start over with a new set. Don't forget, with this summer heat it's important to have fresh water and clean water. My next big fishing trip will be a week-long around the 4th of July. Eight-pounder, look out! HERE I COME!!

There are several seniors on the state 4-H council. Let’s hear what their plans are for the future. Murphy Peterson: 4-H has impacted me in so many ways. I’ve met friends to last a lifetime and had amazing experiences that I wouldn’t have otherwise. I’ve grown to learn a lot about myself and others through 4-H! I will attend Eastern Oklahoma State

Page 26 - SUMMER 2022

College in Wilburton, Oklahoma in the fall to major in vocal music. Liz Chambers: 4-H has taught me that I can use my talents and skills to accomplish goals much bigger than myself, and: that service to others and improving the communities and lives of those around me is of utmost importance. I will be attending Northern Oklahoma College to pursue a degree in agricultural communications on a full-tuition livestock judging scholarship. Emma Taylor: 4-H has impacted me by giving me stage experience for both presenting and entertaining. I’ve since found my career choice of being a professional songwriter and entertainer, and those performance memories from growing up have been instrumental in helping me make this decision. Haven Hinton: 4-H has impacted my life in more ways that I can even count. I remember when I first got in 4-H I was extremely shy. Being in 4-H pushed me out of my comfort zone and brought out the best version of myself. Because of 4-H I now have a passion for people and I found my love for speaking publicly. I will major in agricultural communications and I hope to one day be a part of the House of Representatives to represent my district on the state level. I hope I can inspire younger people to be the best version of themselves and that sometimes in order to succeed you have to be uncomfortable.

By Mayra Amezcua, Howe FFA Reporter Howe FFA has spent the 2021-2022 school year hard at work participating, competing, and even hosting many activities and community service events.

Howe FFA has been very busy this year making the most of their FFA careers in many different areas, having a well rounded program that has something for all students.
