There’s only one
Oregon Agricultural Showcase.

Look for it just in front of the Forster Livestock Pavilion.

Come join us to learn fascinating things about Oregon agriculture. Everything from bee keeping to goat milking, this stage has it all. We’ll even have extra special visits from our very own Oregon Dairy Princess Ambassador, Miss Teen Rodeo Oregon, and Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon! Check out our schedule below to find out more.

Here a few highlights:

  • The Oregon Farm Bureau always has a lot to share on a variety of agricultural topics.
  • Oregon Dairy Princess Ambassador Emily is overflowing with stories, temporary tattoos, cookies, and of course, milk!
  • Auctioneer Cinch Anderson demonstrates a variety of tongue-twisting techniques to help you become a speedy speaker.
  • Representing Equi-touch, Mike Watkins will present aspects of horse massage.
  • Farm Fun Fest is team competition in our nearby tented show green. Form a team of four and show how much you know about farming.
  • Miss Teen Rodeo Oregon and Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon are real rodeo queens. And they’ll describe what it takes to earn that lofty status.
  • Ever seen an Oregon legislator milk a goat? Well here’s your chance, as state reps and senators take on all challengers from the Capitol building.
  • Sheep shearing is equal parts art form and hard work, and you can see for yourself when professionals take the stage.
  • Student presentations by members of the Oregon FFA Association is an annual highlight on this stage. Topics vary depending on available time. But here are a few items we anticipate learning more about:
    • Floriculture
    • Nursery & Landscaping
    • Irrigation Systems
    • Pet Health & Safety
    • Dairy Cows vs. Beef Cows
    • Agricultural Science
  • Oregon FFA Foundation Ambassador presentations have to do with Oregon Commodity Roadside Bingo (a fun and educational form of bingo), Potato varieties and trivia.
