Shane Green

Listen to KC Sheperd talk with Shane Green ahead of the 2023 State FFA Convention in Tulsa.

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 four area stars in Agribusiness 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 Agribusiness competitor Shane Green of the Boswell FFA chapter representing the Southeast Area.

For Green’s project, he said he runs a stocker operation, cow-calf operation, and he also helps with his brother’s hay baling operation.

Green said he is grateful for the help of his family during his project. He also noted that like many producers in the state, the drought has made things more difficult.

One of Green’s favorite memories from his FFA career, he said, has been participating in Ag Mechanics.

“I have had a hog trap, I have had a portable cattle pen, I had a squeeze chute, and this last year I built a trailer,” Green said.  

Following high school graduation, Green said he plans to attend OSU-IT and focus on natural gas compression. Green also plans to continue to be a part of the cattle business.
