Introducing Peyton Simic of the Garber FFA Chapter, Your 2024 Northwest Area Star in Ag Placement

Listen to KC Sheperd talk with Peyton Simic ahead of the State FFA Convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

During the month of April, the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and Oklahoma Farm Report are spotlighting the 18 Area Stars of Oklahoma FFA, who 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 Placement in 2024.

One Star Finalist featured in the coming days from each of the categories will be named the State Star Award Winner during the 98th Oklahoma State FFA Convention, which will take place on May 7th and 8th in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

This week, our coverage of the 2024 Oklahoma FFA Star Award Finalists continues with Ag Placement competitor Peyton Simic of the Garber FFA chapter representing the Northwest Area.

“I am a third-generation farmer at Simic Farms, and I have been working there my whole FFA career,” Simic said. “Some of my jobs include running combines, planters, sprayers, and things like that.”

Simic said he farms corn, wheat, soybeans, milo, and sesame seeds with his family at Simic Farms. A couple of valuable skills Simic said he learned through his project include time management and record keeping.

After graduating high school, Simic said he plans to attend Northern Oklahoma College in Enid to pursue an associate’s degree in Agribusiness, before returning to the family farm.

“I will be coming back and will be the next generation of Simic Farms,” Simic said.
