West Hills College Coalinga’s Farm of the Future will host a Future Farmers of America (FFA) field day on Nov. 3, featuring three different competitions, with registration ongoing until Oct. 26.
Each year the West Hills College Coalinga's Farm of the Future hosts an FFA Field Day where FFA teams throughout the Central Valley compete in specific career development events. Students who participate in our FFA Field Day will also receive a tour of our state of the art Farm of the Future and an overview of agriculture programs offered by West Hills College Coalinga.
The field day will include competition in the agricultural welding, land judging and best informed greenhand career development events. Field days allow FFA members to prepare for the upcoming state finals for these contests.
The action will start at 6:30 a.m. and culminate with an awards ceremony for winning teams and individuals. Buckles will be awarded to first place individuals and ribbons to 1st through 5th place individuals and teams. A sweep-stakes trophy will also be awarded.
