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 Agricultural Production 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 continues with Agricultural Production competitor Gabriella Clark of the Atoka FFA chapter representing the Southeast Area.
“I started my business, C5 Genetics, when I was a freshman in high school,” Clark said. “I started it with my family. We show and raise swine.”
Clark said her project has helped grow her work ethic because regardless of the weather or anything else that may be going on, she must take care of her animals.
“I plan to attend Oklahoma State University in the fall and major in animal science with a pre-vet option,” Clark said.
Clark plans to continue working on her project when she goes to college.
