Abigail Mozina, a senior at Conneaut Area Senior High School and a member of Conneaut Area FFA, recently won the Pennsylvania FFA Star Farmer Award for her supervised agricultural experience in the area of goat production. The Star Farmer award is given to a State Keystone Degree recipient based on an application process along with multiple levels of interviews. She received her Keystone Degree at the mid-winter convention during the PA Farm Show along with Conneaut Area FFA members Alexandra Reinhart, Brevin Klink and Greg Klink.

Mozina’s supervised agricultural experience was based on owning and managing a herd of breeding Boer goats. Through this project, she has taught herself hoof trimming, how to properly measure and ration feedstuffs, kidding and breeding. Now, she will have the opportunity to represent Conneaut Area FFA and Pennsylvania FFA while competing against other states at the Big E livestock exposition this fall.

Additionally, 11 Conneaut Area FFA members received their first FFA jacket at the mid-winter convention thanks to donors from the community and the Pennsylvania FFA Alumni Association.
