Cameron Pokorny of the Waupun FFA is the Wisconsin Star in Agribusiness.
The Star in Agribusiness award recognizes students who have taken their spirit for entrepreneurship and developed their own agricultural business.
As the owner and manager of Cam’s Coop, Cameron makes all decisions related to finances, marketing, inventory, and sales for his business. What began with just a few egg-laying birds expanded as Cameron’s passion for poultry grew. His business grew to 200 live birds, and he began to consider how he could use his agribusiness to help others. Cameron began donating eggs to his local food pantry and growing vegetables. Most recently in 2021, Cameron donated 220 pounds of produce, 155 broilers, and 2,200 dozen eggs to his local food pantry.
Cameron’s SAE has helped him decide to pursue a career in agricultural engineering, as he learned how much he enjoyed designing, building, and troubleshooting projects related to his poultry.
Cameron’s parents are Doyle and Kim Pokorny. His advisors are Tari Costello, Ryan Seichter, and Kris Beaver.
