This year’s North Dakota FFA Star in Agricultural Placement is Brett Baumgarten from the Kindred FFA Chapter. Baumgarten says his Supervised Agricultural Experience consists of working on his family’s farm. “My favorite part is getting to spend time with my dad and grandpa because assets will be around forever, but people won’t always be here. The memories, skills, and experiences they’ve taught and shared with me will last all through my lifetime.” The 2023 State Star Farmer is Scranton FFA member Lillian Steeke. Steeke says her SAE, which consists of sheep, cattle, and poultry has grown her sense of responsibility. “The most rewarding part comes from that little lamb or chick and moving it up into the production side.”
