Introducing Cooper Thompson of the Adair FFA Chapter, Your 2021 Northeast Area Star in Agribusiness


During the month of April, the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and Oklahoma Farm Report is spotlighting the twenty 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 Production Agriculture.

This week, we spotlight the five area stars in Agribusiness for 2021.

One Star Finalist featured in the coming days from each of the categories, will be named the State Star Award Winner during the 95th Oklahoma State FFA Convention coming up April 27, and 28th in Oklahoma City.

This week, our coverage of the 2021 Oklahoma FFA Star Award Finalists continues with Agribusiness competitor Cooper Thompson of the Adair FFA chapter representing the Northeast Area.

Lawn care and maintenance is the focus of Thompsonís agribusiness project.

Thompson met a professional lawn care expert during a livestock show about five years ago and he helped Thompson get started in the business.

Thompson also credits his father for advice and providing extra labor.

The project has taught him responsibility, the ins and outs of running a business.

The determination it takes to run a business like this has been a great lesson, he said.

Judging livestock has been a highlight of his FFA career.

FFA has really meant an opportunity for me to point my enthusiasm to be as competitive and successful as possible, Thompson said.

Future plans call for Thompson to attend Northern Oklahoma College and compete on the livestock judging team and finishing his studies at Oklahoma State University.
