Florida FFA Names State Star in Agribusiness

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Florida FFA Association selected student members as finalists for the highly coveted State Star in Agribusiness, within the “Stars of Florida” award recognition program.

Finalist shared their SAE’s virtually and a winner was named. 

The Florida FFA Association is pleased to announce the 2020 State Star in Agribusiness:

Noah Anuez, Fort White FFA

Noah Anuez learned the importance of hard work from his father. Taking this lesson, he joined the FFA, where he was able to find a balance of knowledge and skills in the field of agriculture and business. Anuez began his SAE by mowing yards and doing odd and end jobs. However, the scope began to diversify to fence building, bush hogging and lawn maintenance. Today, he has expanded to hauling equipment/cattle, doing professional fencing, tree work, as well as buying and selling cows, hay, and much more. Anuez says, “This has brought me great pride in my work and my abilities. I have mastered the ability to problem solve quickly and work with others as the need arises. These experiences have found a place in my heart to make sure my customers are always happy and satisfied with the service I have provided. I always want to do right by the customer if they were unsatisfied with my service.” He has developed his own brand, Anuez Enterprise and hopes to continue to provide reliable and quality service to his customers. He is a member of the Fort White FFA Chapter, and his advisors are Wayne Olfke and Jill Huesman. Congratulations Noah on being named the 2020 State Star in Agribusiness!

Florida FFA Names State Star Chapter Degree Winner

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Florida FFA Association selected four student members as finalists for the highly coveted Star Chapter Degree, within the “Stars of Florida” award recognition program. This program symbolizes the highest competitive recognition for FFA members and their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program(s). Finalist shared their SAE’s virtually and a winner was named. 

The Florida FFA Association is pleased to announce the 2020 State Star Chapter winner is:

Julia Heijkoop, South Sumter Senior FFA

Long before, South Sumter FFA member, Julia Heijkoop zipped up her first FFA jacket, dairy farming has been her way of life. She has grown up spending time on Milk-A-Way and K&H dairies where her father is part owner in the two operations. Upon joining the FFA, and formally beginning her Supervised Agricultural Experience, her responsibilities as an employee of both farms increased to meet her skill level. She started with tasks like washing down floors and helping bring in the groups of cows. Heijkoop says, “Although these are entry level jobs, they allowed me to gain an understanding of cow traffic at the farm and working in close proximity of the cows. My roles have evolved to bringing in the groups of cows on my own, checking the Springer cows and looking for signs of cows having trouble calving, assisting the herdsmen with herd health checks and treatment protocols.”  Heijkoop feels that one of the most important jobs is advocacy. She has created a social media presence for the farms and uses this platform to highlight daily farm activities and inform consumers of the wholesomeness of dairy. Heijkoope says, “If I don’t shine a positive light on what the dairy industry is doing, sharing how we care for our cattle and what we do for the environment, another account will take the opportunity to spread false narratives.”  Heijkoops advisors are Tim Edwards, Morgan Wilson and Patty Wells. Congratulations Julia on being named the 2020 State Star Chapter Degree Winner!

Johanna Heijkoop has a diversified SAE project, which includes: Dairy placement and entrepreneurship and Market Lamb, steer and swine. The main emphasis is on the Dairy portions of her SAE. Growing up on a dairy has allowed her to be immersed into her project. Heijkoop says, “I have grown up on the farm helping feed calves, bring up cows, wash down floors, and count hay bales. I bought my first Jersey heifer at age 5 and began following in my siblings’ footsteps raising replacement heifers and showing the higher quality heifers. Over the years, my Jersey herd has grown in numbers, and I have had the opportunity to sell some animals to other youth as project animals. I have also diversified my project interests and have raised three market lambs, a market steer, and two market hogs. The hours I work at the farm and the profit from the sale of replacement heifers in my name are included in an non-cash agreement with Milk-A-Way Dairy, Inc in exchange for feed and health care expenses of other show animals.” She is a member of the South Sumter Middle FFA Chapter, and her advisor is Rebecca Barnes.  Congratulations Johanna on being names the 2020 State Star Discovery Degree Winner!
