National FFA Star Finalist in Agribusiness Brady Womack of the Morris FFA Chapter Heads to IndyFri, 19 Oct 2018 11:16:01 CDT
At the 2018 National FFA Convention in Indianapolis - Oklahoma continues the tradition of placing finalists into the Star Competition. Oklahoma has two Star Finalists for 2018. One of them is a National Star Finalist in Agribusiness - Brady Womack of the Morris FFA Chapter, who sat down with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays to talk about his business before he hit the road to Indianapolis this week. You can listen to their complete conversation by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.
“It’s called B5 Enterprises Show Supplies,” Womack said. “I provide quality show supplies from Weaver’s, Sullivan’s, Jobe’s and I even have my own line of supplies and equipment - from sheep and goat stands to cattle displays - everything besides a show box.”
Womack started his business from the ground up in 2012 after acquiring a bank loan of $12,000 for the initial capital he needed to get his business firmly established. Womack was able to pay off that loan through his hard work in just 18 months. Since then, he has watched his business grow from one trailer to now six and employs his own sales team to help spread the work load. Today, Womack’s business has a presence at 300 junior livestock shows a year, attending between three and five show each weekend between December and March. He credits his experiences through the FFA with helping him to develop some of the practical skills that have proved necessary in successfully operating his business. He hopes to continue to grow his business which he says has never felt like a job.
“I’ve always been told if you like what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life and every time I am able to get up and go to a show, I feel like I’m not working,” he said. “I’m just enjoying what I’ve been blessed with.”
