A WORD FROM MIKE AXT,

FOUNDATION PRESIDENT

First, and most important, thank you to our Star Partners and all of our supporters to the North Dakota FFA Foundation and North Dakota FFA. Without your involvement in our organization we would not have experienced one of the greatest FFA State Conventions that North Dakota has seen. Being able to work with and observe the FFA members participate in their CDE’s and give their best effort to earn the right to represent North Dakota at the National Convention this fall in Indianapolis was a blessing. I would like to congratulate all of our state winning teams and individual winners for all of the hard work you put in to obtain your achievement. Congratulations to the 2018-2019 officer team. I look forward to a GREAT year for North Dakota FFA. As an Ag Educator/FFA advisor, I am privileged to work with the greatest group of individuals I could imagine. As President of the North Dakota FFA Foundation I belong to a very special family of people who support students interested in agriculture and developing the leaders of tomorrow. Foundation President,


2018 STAR AWARD RECIPIENTS STAR FARMER Kurt Muggli, Grant County

In 2015, Kurt was given the opportunity to rent land and as they say, ‘the rest is history.’ He has increased the acres he rents from 210 to 560 acres and has raised wheat, corn, soybeans, and sunflowers. Kurt has detailed plans for fertilization, crop rotations, and marketing. These plans have allowed him to enjoy his favorite time of the year, harvest season, and reap the benefits. He has accomplished purchasing his own tractor along with obtaining a commercial drivers license. Kurt not only gained skills in production, but also electronics, machinery, and maintenance. Kurt is the son of Tim and Andrea Muggli of Carson. He is a member of the Grant County FFA Chapter and his advisor is Mr. Pete Hetle. Following graduation, Kurt will begin farming full-time.

Star FARMER

STAR IN AGRIBUSINESS

Kevin Friedt, Harvey

Mowing 36 yards in one day is a record set by Friedt’s Yard Service, where Kevin Friedt is in business with his brothers. Friedt’s Yard Service currently maintains over 60 lawns weekly and does spring cleanup for over 100 lawns. Kevin has responsibilities in bookkeeping, mowing, and maintenance. He credits this business with increasing his skills in communication, growing his work ethic, and teaching him the importance of record keeping and sound financial practices. Kevin is a member of the Harvey FFA Chapter with advisors Mr. Wade Anderson and Mr. Daniel Deck. Kevin plans to attend NDSU in the fall majoring in horticulture with a minor in business. His parents are Mark and Dawn Friedt.

STAR IN AGRICULTURAL PLACEMENT

Cory Schmaltz, Harvey

Cory is the 4th generation to work on his family’s 100 year old, diversified agriculture production farm. In addition to working at Schmaltz Farms he also has a placement SAE with Wolfe Farms. His roles have expanded over the years to include chemical application, fertilizing, grain handling and truck driving, though his favorite duties involve working with beef cattle. Through his school’s work co-op hour, Cory was placed with a local feed mill/dealer where he has become knowledgeable on all aspects of the business including shipping, mixing rations, maintenance, and customer service. This experience has also allowed him to gain a better understanding of cattle rations and transfer that knowledge to his family’s operation. Cory is active in the Harvey FFA Chapter. He is the son of Leon and Renee Schmaltz and his FFA advisors are Mr. Wade Anderson and Mr. Daniel Deck.

STAR IN AGRISCIENCE Brianna Maddock, Kindred

The Effects of Truss Design on Roof Capabilities, the Effect of Washing Methods on Bacteria on Eggs, the Effect of Insulation in Near Space on Crops, and Cellulosic Ethanol Pretreatment Methods are just a few of the research topics Brianna has focused on over the course of her high school career. Brianna states her greatest accomplishment came from her study on the production of cellulosic ethanol. “This was the first experiment I conducted which directly related to a current issue in the agriculture industry and I was able to discuss my research with a professor at North Dakota State University." Brianna is an active member of the Kindred FFA Chapter and currently serves as the 2018-2019 ND FFA State President. Her advisors are Mr. Mitchell Becker and Ms. Breanna Bregel. She is the daughter of Robert and Tamra Maddock.
