Youth Development

OSU Big 3 Field Days is the most time-honored summer field day in the country! The three day event draws approximately 1,500 youth to OSU to participate in livestock judging and other educational events.

The annual AFR Leadership Summit focuses on leadership, teamwork and cooperative skills. Activities are geared towards helping you develop into one of tomorrow’s agricultural leaders. Start your journey today!

More than 4,000 Oklahoma elementary school students expressed their appreciation for farmers during the 2017 American Farmers & Ranchers poster contest.

CAFR offers agricultural students an opportunity to grow their leadership skills with emphasis on education, cooperation and legislation by meeting with agricultural professionals in Oklahoma.

This contest is designed to recognize 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.

American Farmers & Ranchers sponsors college scholarships annually to young people who have been active participants in the Youth Program. College scholarships are given annually to assist participants financially with college and university expenses.
