FFA Schedule

 

Department 700 – FFA

The National FFA Organization believes that livestock exhibition and judging competitions offer significant opportunities for the personal, social and career growth of its members. Participation in all competitive events requires the highest personal standards of ethics, integrity and fair play as called for in the FFA Code of Ethics. FFA members are expected to comply with the specific rules of each competition and to adhere to the National Show Ring Code of Ethics. Additionally, FFA does not condone or tolerate abuse or mistreatment of animals in any form in its activities, programs, or competitions. The organization actively supports the training and education of FFA members and advisors in the proper ethical behavior for livestock competitions and in the application of sound and humane principles of animal husbandry.
