There was not too long ago in the stock show world that the

first spring jackpot was after the first of the year. No holiday classics. No New Year jackpots. Just a handful of late January and February events. Jackpots are all the time, now. Now I’m not griping. I think it’s great. For all of you have jackpot series and have a place close to home to show, don’t take them for granted. Take it as a luxury. Take it as a great training ground for you and your livestock. Oh sure, there will always be a few that sadly show their ignorance and gripe about the judge or gripe about the weather or gripe about the facilities or gripe about the start time or just gripe in general. But, what I’m seeing more and more are folks appreciating the events and the people who run them. In my travels, I hear thank you, nice facility or good job. Is that cool or what? A handful of thank you notes are showing up as well. I guess what I’m trying to say is continue your appreciative attitude. There will always be a few negative nannies and folks you will never please. The individuals that run these small jackpots are not OYE or district show staff. The person on the mic could be the local superintendent, banker, farmer, coach, and may be attending their first jackpot. All in all they are the local supporters doing what they can for their community. A thank you from a kid or show parent will insure a good show next year and one that’s close to home for you to participate in and prepare your show livestock for bigger shows down the road.

By Kale Currier, Fargo-Gage FFA Reporter This group of 8th, 9th and 10th graders attended the Made For Excellence Conference in Norman December 11-12 and learned about topics such as leadership, motivation, goal setting and teamwork. They also met Braden Heisler, our Northwest Area State FFA vice president. These conferences are presented by the Oklahoma FFA Association and sponsored by McDonald’s of Oklahoma. The conference mission is to provide members the chance to develop and refine skills that will create a lifetime of leadership.

Page 12 - JAN/FEB 2022

The Made for Excellence conference is designed for eighth, ninth and tenth grade FFA members to meet them where they are: thinking about the future, understanding themselves and considering choices ahead. With a thoughtful mix of activities, large and small group interaction, direct instruction and personal reflection, MFE is designed to be engaging and meaningful for FFA members. Fargo-Gage FFA members attending the Made For Excellence conference were Jerickah Laverty, Kooper Coulson, Allyson Navarro, Bexlei Good, Taelor Chriestenson and Kaydence Reasner.

By Lucki Greenwood, Stigler FFA Chapter The Stigler FFA Chapter held a petting zoo for Stigler Elementary students. FFA Members brought their farm animals, taught students about beef byproducts and plants, and had Southwest Mobile Dairy to attend and put on a presentation about dairy cattle. Stigler FFA had many high school students attend the petting zoo. There were students that were freshman all the way to senior. Not only were there high schoolers there were also grade schoolers. The grade school had grades from first all the way for fourth grade. Junior Gracie Fenton said “The petting zoo was a really cool experience for everyone involved. The younger kids got to learn about agriculture, and have fun doing it. All of us high school kids really enjoyed helping out with the younger groups. Fun was definitely had by all.” The FFA members who taught plant science class all day were Page 14 - JAN/FEB 2022

Gracie Bates, Skyler Sullins, Brylee Saterfield, and Jannelle Hurst. The members that taught the fourth grade plant science class were Halle Watson, Ericka Sullins, Jordyn Cantrell, and Janine Buckner. Gracie Fenton, and Parker McClary also helped. They all did a lesson over “Sprouting Fingers.” What they did in the lesson was get gloves, three cotton balls, and seeds. The kids would wet the cotton balls, then they would put the seed in the cotton ball. After the seed was fully covered by the cotton ball they would put the cotton ball down into fingers of the gloves, and tie it with yarn at the top. They were supposed to take it home, and make sure their cotton balls stayed damp until they saw growth with their seeds. The Stigler FFA members who taught the beef byproducts class were Kason Sharber, Anthony Hernandez, Britt Thomas, and Jacob Murrell. The beef byproduct class taught Sophomore Anna Nicolei said

Ag Youth Magazine - Braggin’ on Kids for 34 Years!

“I brought two mini donkeys to the petting zoo, and at first it was a huge struggle trying to get the donkeys loaded in the trailer and brought into the barn but we eventually got them in there. The day was exciting, there were so many kids with huge smiles plastered on their faces. The day was all worth it when all of the children had questions about my donkeys.” The Southwest Mobile Dairy has trained instructors that demonstrate how to milk a cow, describe how milk goes from cow to consumer, and then they answer questions from the audience. This is an innovative program that brings that dairy experience directly to children. Talk about the importance of teaching the younger generations about agriculture. The primary aim of the Stigler FFA Chapter is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success.

There was a day that Papa shot a lot of quail. He still owns five bird dogs. But since I’ve been big enough to tag along, the quail numbers have been low, very low. I have, however, shot a few pheasants and a few quail by his side. Hey guys, this is Trenton. I’ve took it upon myself to learn to duck hunt. I’ve annoyed family and friends by blowing a duck call all the time and annoyed Papa by trying to teach him how to duck hunt. I was told by some that duck hunting was cold, early mornings and boring, but it has became a passion to me. Now teaching papa is a another lesson. He’s getting better this year than last year. We don’t have as many ducks down because this is the hottest, driest December on record. Especially out west were Papa lives. It hasn’t got cold enough in Nebraska or Kansas to send them down our way. We need it to freeze up north!!

A guy was nice to Papa and gave him an old pop-up blind. We fixed it up, and it works great. We’ve harvested four ducks yesterday and seven more ducks today. I called in all but two, and I think I have papa hooked. He really likes how they “locked in.” He even likes more when I say, “Take’m.” Here are a few tips I’ve tried to teach Papa: #1. Papa shoots pretty good and wind matters. #2. Setting your decoys out properly really matters. #3. I am a better duck shot then Papa. He missed a goose yesterday ,and I’m still disappointed in him. We had fun harvesting wigeon, gadwalls, green wing teal, and one big Greater Canadian Goose. Papa is starting to get better, he is stubborn. I have lots of training left to do on him. We had lots of fun being in the field together!

Hey Papa!

President Baylee Brown, Vice President KayLea Taylor, Secretary Hanna Schmidt, Treasurer Callen Oldenburg, Reporter Casyn Larman, Sentinel Willie Schoonover and member Lora Golay.

By Casyn Larman, Mulhall-Orlando FFA Reporter On October 26, 2021, Mulhall-Orlando FFA Advisor Tonya Middleton loaded up 7 members to travel to the 94th National FFA Convention and Expo which was held in Indianapolis, Indiana. After last year’s convention being virtual only, it was very exciting to be able to attend this momentous event. President Baylee Brown, Vice President KayLea Taylor, Secretary Hanna Schmidt, Treasurer Callen Oldenburg, Reporter Casyn Larman, Sentinel Willie Schoonover and member Lora Golay were chosen to represent our Chapter. We spent 4 days at the Convention and were involved in many leadership activities and sessions. The convention was broken into seven general sessions, numerous special sessions, and workshops over four days. One of the highlights for our chapter was being selected to serve as State Delegates for the Oklahoma FFA Association. During the first session M-O Officers Baylee Brown, KayLea Taylor, Callen Oldenburg, and Casyn Larman joined the Oklahoma State FFA Officer Team as delegates on the convention floor. Courtenay DeHoff kicked off the convention as the keynote speaker. Her personal story of trials and tribulations as an agriculture advocate on the national media stage was informative and inspiring. At the conclusion of the first general session, we continued to represent Oklahoma with the State Officer team in the first delegate session. A total of 475 student delegates representing each state FFA association meet at each convention to set membership dues, elect the next National FFA officer team, and suggest changes. Representing the Oklahoma FFA as delegates was a great experience and an honor for our small-town officer team members. Another Page 18 - JAN/FEB 2022

great moment happened during the second general session, when our very own KayLea Taylor was recognized on the national stage as a Finalist for the Agriculture Education – Entrepreneurship Proficiency Award. It is an amazing achievement, and we are extremely proud of her accomplishment! In between going to convention sessions, Mrs. Middleton had many outside activities planned for us. We experienced the Indy Scream Park Haunted House and toured the Conner Prairie Corn Maze and Museum. Overall, it was a very motivating experience that will help shape our leadership abilities and improve our service to our chapter.

Our very own KayLea Taylor was recognized on the national stage as a Finalist for the Agriculture Education – Entrepreneurship Proficiency Award.

Oklmulgee FFA Secretary LeAundre Delonia interviewed FFA alums Leman Lewis, Sr. and Charles Willis. By Kali Perez, Reporter, Okmulgee FFA Reporter Throughout the 2021-2022 school year, Okmulgee FFA members are celebrating the 70th anniversary of the creation of the school district’s agricultural education program in 1951 as a New Farmers of America Chapter while looking towards the future. Fifteen African-American boys banded together with instructor S.E. Fuhr at Okmulgee’s segregated Dunbar High School to charter the Dunbar NFA Chapter on August 17, 1951. The program had several state and national accomplishments, including a national public speaking winner and multiple national winning livestock judging teams. The program became Okmulgee FFA when the two national organizations merged in 1965. Current Okmulgee FFA Secretary, LeAundre Delonia, recorded a video interview with two former Dunbar NFA members/ officers to discuss the contentious merger and to capture some of their experiences in the program. The video is available on the Okmulgee FFA Facebook page as well as on YouTube. One of the interviewees, Leman Lewis, Sr., was the high ranking individual livestock judging member during the NFA 1963 convention in Atlanta, Georgia. Charles Williams, the 1963 Dunbar NFA vice president, was asked during the interview what it was like to attend the national NFA convention in Atlanta. Page 22 - JAN/FEB 2022

“Back then, we stayed in the YMCA- because we couldn’t stay in hotels,” Williams said. “Nowadays, young people get to travel and go to different places. But to us, that was probably the farthest I’ve been from home. We had a great time while we were there competing,” Williams said. The interview with Lewis and Williams is just one aspect of the 70th anniversary celebrations. Okmulgee FFA members rode a NFA/FFA themed float in the school homecoming parade, have published NFA history and pictures in the local newspaper, and have made plans to bury a time capsule during National FFA Week in 2022 and include NFA memorabilia. The time capsule will be opened in 30 years on the 100th anniversary of the creation of the agricultural education program in Okmulgee.

First Place Team was Valliant FFA Chapter with members Baylee Weatherford, Sydney Tyler and Audry Davis. Thirty youth from across Oklahoma competed in the 2021 Midwest Shows Livestock Handling Scholarship Contest Dec. 17. The annual competition showcases the skills of young FFA members in practical, real-life cattle handling scenarios, such as weighing for accurate dosage, vaccinating and tagging calves in a hydraulic chute. Contestants are judged on skill, accuracy and efficiency as they process the animals. “While stress-free processing has always been a goal of good cattlemen, proper and efficient handling has become even more important in the modern age of livestock production,” said AFR Cooperative President Scott Blubaugh. The annual contest begins with a written exam that measures students’ knowledge of livestock handling practices. At the state level, the competition emphasizes the application of classroom study to actual agricultural production scenarios. In order to excel, students must take knowledge out of the classroom and apply it in a real world situation. Top-placing overall teams received caps and cash scholarship awards. The first place team in the livestock handling portion of the contest also received the Frank Elliot Scholarship and $2,000 in Priefert equipment to be used by the entire FFA chapter. The overall winners of this year’s Midwest Shows Livestock Handling Scholarship Contest were as follows: 1st: Valliant FFA Chapter: Baylee Weatherford, Sydney Tyler and Audry Davis 2nd: Newkirk FFA Chapter: Justin Fast, Addison Schneberger and Kyson Thiel 3rd: Temple FFA Chapter: Jaramiah Chumley, Jake Smart and Jett McIntyre 4th: Crescent FFA Chapter: Maysen Garrett, Kinzie Bell and Ronni Adams 5th: Battiest FFA Chapter: Kace McDonald, Kyeson Perrin and Luke DeLozier

6th: Tipton FFA Chapter: Tiffany Lamar, Rose Lamar and Ethan Cowan 7th: Perkins-Tryon FFA Chapter: Kaden Brunker, Logan Hering and Hagen Cundiff 8th: Comanche FFA Chapter: Kylie Lemons, Caity Ramsey and Emma Parks 9th: Pawnee FFA Chapter: Erica Wells Kleman, Tayla Burns and Landon Shell 10th: Adair FFA Chapter: Caleb Peper, Dax Delozier and Blake Long

The 2021 Midwest Shows Livestock Handling Scholarship Contest was sponsored by AFR, Ballou Cattle Company, Behlen Country Farm & Ranch Equipment, Cattleac Cattle Equipment, Datamars Livestock, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation, Oklahoma Farm Bureau, Oklahoma National Stockyards and Priefert Rodeo & Ranch Equipment.

Triggor Hargrove of Sayre, Oklahoma, and Brandt O’Connor of Blair, Oklahoma, won the Junior World Finals Rodeo Team RopingChampionship in Las Vegas. “It was my first time ever doing it, so it was kind of a first experience for me and I am glad I got to do it with one of my friends,” said Brandt O’Connor, the Junior World Finals Rodeo champion. This was Brandt O’Connor’s first championship and he and his partner took home multiple awards. “He and his partner, Trigger Hargrove, were able to compete and win a rope-in which qualified them to compete at this particular rodeo,” said Brandie Combs, Brandt’s mother. “He and Trigger won the average, meaning they had the fastest time on five steers, and then they also won the world, as the header and the healer, meaning they had the most money won among all of the contestants.”

Shattuck Opening Ceremonies Team poses on the football field at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

By Emmie Swanson, Shattuck FFA Reporter “FFA Members, why are we here?” This year Shattuck FFA had 12 students participate in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies contest, which is meant to highlight a chapter’s ability to properly conduct official meetings. The Shattuck team placed first in the Woodward Region Contest, and advanced

to the State tournament held in Stillwater. The team missed the state finals by one point, placing third in their heat. The opening ceremonies contest is a great way for young students to dip their toes into public speaking, with the security of competing as a team After the contest, the Shattuck team, consisting of 8th and 9th graders, were introduced to Shattuck Alumna Logan

FOOD SCIENCE ACTIVITIES Shattuck FFA has focused on food science over the past few weeks through hands-on experiences ranging from poultry processing to pancake flipping. The month of October began with every ag class learning how to process broiler chickens. This was a first for most of the students, but it was all hands on deck from plucking to packaging. Shattuck FFA purchased chicken processing equipment with a Devon Energy grant a few years back, and this was the first time it was utilized by all of the ag students to process a large group of birds. The following week, ag classes geared up for Shattuck Oktoberfest by making 150 lbs of wurst to be served with a large variety of German cuisine. Students used both automatic and hand grinders to mix the pork and beef, while others mixed and added the seasoning recipe. The meat mixture was then moved to the hand powered sausage making machine where it was put into casing.

The food-focused month culminated in a school-wide pancake and waffle breakfast. What began as a discussion in Mrs. Pool’s computer class about breakfast food favorites, turned into a meal for the entire 5-12th student body. The 8th grade boys’ ag class was able to chip in and flip pancakes for the breakfast. Shattuck FFA loves to eat, and any excuse to learn how to make or cook food, is one that is always met with enthusiasm.

Holt. Logan is working on her Master’s degree and currently holds the title of senior administrative support assistant for the OSU wrestling team. She offered a tour of Gallagher- IBA, and Boone Pickens Stadium that did not disappoint. After seeing the basketball arena, the girls walked down onto the football field. Official dress rules went out the window as the team tossed their heels and jackets to sprint across the field and make some imaginary winning touchdown plays. It seemed clear that this was the highlight of the tour until Logan walked the girls downstairs and straight into wrestling practice. The OSU wrestling team are basically celebrities on campus, and have won more NCAA team championships than any other school. Head Coach John Smith, a legend himself, greeted each Shattuck student with a smile and a handshake and welcomed the girls to sit down and watch practice. Although most of the Shattuck FFA girls probably don’t follow the OSU wrestling team, none of them complained about having to sit and watch the wrestlers practice for their next match. Shattuck FFA is not only appreciative to Logan for the amazing VIP tour, but also to several SHS graduates now attending OSU, who turned up to support them at the contest. Despite the results of the Opening Ceremonies Contest, Shattuck FFA had a great day. agyouth.com

By Carolyn Greenfield and Madison Nickels Born during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Food, Fun, 4-H program has been wildly successful, with hundreds of families finding themselves in the kitchen preparing themed main dishes, sides and desserts over the last 18 months, said Cathy Allen, Oklahoma 4-H Youth Development curriculum coordinator with Oklahoma State University Extension. Food, Fun, 4-H put kids in the kitchen, cooking, sharing and communicating with their families, as well as learning cooking skills and understanding the process of planning, time management and budgeting. Each month during the program, participants receive an information packet with educational lessons, step-by-step recipes for the themed meal, physical activity challenges, conversation starters for their family dinners, fair entry ideas and a way to be generous to others in their community. Participants also are mailed a cooking utensil or gadget to help them prepare food. Abby Logan from Payne County said “I would explain Food, Fun, 4-H to someone as being a great way to further your knowledge of food and food safety and it also encourages other people outside of 4-H to get involved.” Food, Fun, 4-H began in the summer of 2020 and was so successful the program expanded to the classroom. Food, Fun, 4-H at School was introduced for classrooms to be able to learn kitchen skills as well as provided information about how their food was grown and safety in the Page 46 - JAN/FEB 2022

kitchen. In summer of 2021, Food, Fun, 4-H went around the world with each month focusing on a different country. Youth gained insightful information about the geography, holidays and culture of the country. Garfield County 4-H member Bailey Nickels has participated in both years of the summer Food, Fun, 4-H program. “I got to learn a lot of new recipes with Food, Fun, 4-H. I even learned new techniques,” Bailey said. “I learned about different cultures and how their food is a lot different than ours. With every set of recipes, we got a new kitchen tool. I got a garlic press which I thought was awesome! I’ve used my garlic press a lot since I got it.” The newest edition of Food, Fun, 4-H just began in November. With Festive Food, Fun, 4-H, members have the opportunity to make holiday favorites and also learn about generosity. “Food has long been a way for people to bond or show appreciation. This is an opportunity for participants to get in the kitchen with grandma or another family member and make a traditional family cookie recipe or experiment with a new one. You might even create a new family tradition,” Allen said. “Not only will this help ensure the family recipe is passed along from generation to generation, but also provides an opportunity for a young family member to have a conversation with and learn from an older family member and create new memories.” Festive Food, Fun, 4-H also included information on generosity and showing gratitude this holiday season.
