Katie Krehbiel, Inman, received a State FFA Proficiency Award in Swine Production Entrepreneurship at the annual FFA convention in May. KPA is the sponsor of this award.
Katie raises and breeds crossbreds as well as registered Hampshire pigs, which she shows at local and state fairs and sells to members of her local 4-H club. She began her operation at nine years old and has been able to expand her business, as well as learning proper care for her animals and budgeting and business management skills. Katie made improvements to her operation after receiving a grant from National FFA to upgrade electricity and plumbing in her farrowing house. Katie plans to pursue a degree in zoology.
The proficiency award program recognizes students for exceptional accomplishments and excellence in a Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program.
