West Hills College Coalinga’s Farm of the Future will host a Future Farmers of America (FFA) field day on Nov. 3, featuring four different competitions, with registration ongoing until Oct. 26.
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 event is expected to draw over 100 students from schools across the state and is the seventh FFA contest hosted by the Farm of the Future.
“The field day is a great opportunity for high school students to visit campus, meet our faculty and learn about the Farm of the Future’s educational offerings,” said Dr. Timothy Ellsworth, Farm of the Future instructor and field day organizer.
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.
