Youth Development

This contest recognizes Oklahoma youth who have an interest in livestock, excel in showmanship skills and have knowledge of the livestock industry to include production, management, processing and end product utilization. Entry forms are due March 9th.

This popular event is held in the fall of each year and is available to members and non-members. Students in grades 4-12 compete in their respective category at District contests held around the state.

During the recent AFR Leadership Summit, youth participants worked on service projects that benefitted children less fortunate than themselves.

Each year, American Farmers & Ranchers organizes a poster contest for elementary students across the state of Oklahoma. There’s always a remarkable response and each year the home office receives 4,000+ posters. This year’s theme is "What does agriculture do for me?"
