The "Big 3" Field Days dates back to the 1960s! Now the event hosts 1500 youth each day for three days. These field days teach life skills that last beyond high school and are held at the Totusek Arena at Oklahoma State University on July 17-19, 2018.
Work ethic, teamwork skills, decision-making skills, and communication skills are just part of what goes into the judging skills gained during the "Big 3" Field Days. To register, click here!
The OSU Animal Science Field Days will be held July 17-19, 2018 at the OSU Animal Science Arena. We will keep the traditional “Big 3” day order with the Sheep Field Day being held on Tuesday, the Beef Field Day on Wednesday, and the Swine Field Day on Thursday. We will use the same scoring process as last year and will officially score every participant each day. You will not be required to post scores on the first two days. We will be using www.judgingcard.com for scantron tabulation.
Oklahoma Farm Bureau will again be sponsoring this year’s plaques and trophies.
There will be four divisions. Jr. Division for 4-H & FFA Jr. 4-H — 13 and under by 1/1/18 Jr. FFA — 10th grade and under as of Fall ‘18 Sr. Division for 4-H & FFA Sr. 4-H — 14 and over by 1/1/18 Sr. FFA — 11th and 12th grade and under as of Fall ‘18
Trophies will be presented to the first through third place teams in each division each day. Plaques will be presented to the top five individuals in each division each day. Team sweepstakes trophies will be awarded to the junior and senior FFA teams. Plaques will be given to the top two individuals in each division for sweepstakes. OSU ANSI “Big 3” Field Days’ method for calculating overall team sweepstakes will be determined by simply adding each team’s daily total (minus the low drop from each day).
A $500 scholarship will be awarded to the senior sweepstakes winner in both of the 4-H and FFA divisions. The scholarship will be funded by Farm Credit in Enid.
We will pull cards from contestants who talk during the contest. A special team of contest monitors will be assigned to each judging group, whose sole responsibility will be to maintain a “contest” atmosphere. Emphasize this with your team members! Teams must remain the same throughout the three days to be considered for the sweepstakes award. Switching team members from one team to another will automatically eliminate the team from the sweepstakes competition.
