Fall events keeping Drummond FFA busy

ENID, Okla. — Fall events are in full swing for the Drummond FFA.

At the Tulsa Livestock Show, Conner Mack received grand champion mini Hereford steer. Clayton Mack, Caitlyn Mack, Colten Dillingham and Brady Kokojan also showed at Tulsa. Rylee Hack, Justin Hopkins, Steffen Singleton, Billy Jack Trotter and Garrett Griffith participated in the livestock judging competition at the Tulsa State Fair.

At the district sporting clay event, the Drummond FFA chapter had the eighth-place team consisting of Brady Kokojan, Dalton Terry, Drew Dodd and Thomas Moore. Kokojan also placed sixth individually. The junior sporting clay team consisted of Justin Hopkins, Billy Jack Trotter, Garrett Griffith and Weston Henneke.

Many members will be traveling to the National FFA convention at the end of October. The convention has been changed to a new location this year, Louisville, Ky. The National FFA Convention is one of the most exciting events of the year for FFA members. Members able to learn more about the FFA, see first-hand how much pride the United States has in the National FFA Organization and meet members from across the country.

The annual labor auction was a success. There also was a metal art silent auction, which involved metal art and cookers members made.

  • Jeff Bedwell Consider safety of forage beforehand

    Drought conditions of the past three to four years and in particular the past eight months had hay/forage inventories at critically low levels. The most recent period ranked as the third-driest period in recorded history. Not unlike the farmers and ranchers of other times of drought, ag producers now have been very resourceful to not only replace hay supplies that have dwindled but also add much-needed revenue to farm income.

  • Right to Farm web 1.jpg Ag industry seeks right to farm

    The emerging battle could have lasting repercussions for the nation’s food supply and for the millions of people worldwide who depend on U.S. agricultural exports. It’s also possible the right-to-farm idea could sputter as a merely symbolic gesture that carries little practical effect beyond driving up voter turnout in local elections.
