State FFA Finals and Field Day

Welcome to the Fresno State FFA State Finals & Field Day Website 

Sheep Judging Contest at FFA Field Day 2022

Here, our goal is to provide access to upcoming Field Day information, contest information, results and pictures. We pride ourselves in being one of the most transparent contest hosts, with public access to individual contestant results.

The Field Day of today was a long evolving process that dates back to the spring of 1949 when Fresno State held its first Livestock judging contest. After that event Fresno State was determined to host more events of a similar structure. Today, Fresno State hosts 3 field days throughout the year consisting of 27 contests and it has allowed approximately 3,000 students to apply knowledge and skills they have obtained in the classroom to the agricultural industry. 

The Fresno State FFA Field Day Committee is made up of Fresno State students, and they are honored to put on such events for the California FFA Association. With 11 state finals that are hosted here at Fresno State, we are excited about the potential growth in the coming years for FFA members that will continue to impact California agriculture.
