During the month of April, the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and Oklahoma Farm Report are spotlighting the 17 Area Stars of Oklahoma FFA that are among the highest achievers in the organization.
The stars come from the five areas in four categories- Star in Ag Placement, Star in Agriscience, Star in Agribusiness, and Star in Agricultural Production.
This week, we spotlight the five area stars in Ag Placement in 2023.
One Star Finalist featured in the coming days from each of the categories will be named the State Star Award Winner during the 97th Oklahoma State FFA Convention coming up on May 2nd and 3rd in Tulsa, Okla.
This week, our coverage of the 2023 Oklahoma FFA Star Award Finalists concludes with Ag Placement competitor Logan Hering of the Perkins-Tryon FFA chapter representing the Central Area.
Hering said he works at Ralph’s Packing Company for his project.
“Working at Ralph’s Packing Company is my family business,” Hering said. “I would be the first generation working there.”
After college, Hering said he plans to come back and work at Ralph’s Packing Company full-time. Hering plans to major in agribusiness and food science in college.
“Once I am done there, I will go work for another company like Cargill,” Hering said. “Work for them for a few years, then come back to the family business. I just need to get another business under my belt so I know what it is like working for another employer that is not your family.”
