Scott City FFA member Emily Glenn was recognized as the State Star in Agribusiness, one of the association’s top honors, during the 90th Kansas FFA Convention, May 30–June 1, 2018, on the Kansas State University campus.
Each year, the Kansas FFA Association recognizes three FFA members who have the top Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) programs with the Star Farmer, Star in Agribusiness and Star in Ag Placement awards. The Star competitions are sponsored by ICM, Inc., United Bank and Trust and Kansas Farm Bureau.
Glenn’s SAE is in Swine Production Entrepreneurship. She has not only raised swine but expanded her herd over the last four years. Currently, her herd consists of three sows and one gilt. Glenn sells the show pigs and feeder pigs. In addition, she also owns and operates Glenn’s Show Feed where she sells cattle, goat, sheep and swine show feeds. Glenn has a line of base mixes and cattle minerals that she uses to create her various types of feed. She uses her own product to feed her swine. Emily is the daughter of Roger and Toni Glenn. Her FFA advisor is Dale Jessup.
Glenn was the district winner in the Southwest District. The other district star winners who were finalists for the state Star in Agribusiness honor were Blake Chance from the Royal Valley FFA, Northeast District, and Madison Toman from the Paola FFA, East Central District.
