OSU Crops Team

Who are we?

The OSU Crops Team has a legacy of nearly 100 years. Competitive teams throughout the University provide skills and knowledge that students carry throughout their careers. The Crops Team is very hands-on and teaches students various aspects, from classing grain samples according to USDA guidelines to calculating stocking rates based on pasture conditions. The team travels to various contests throughout the year, and we try to cover most travel and food costs for all students so that money is never a limiting reason for a student to attend. For many students, this may be their first experience traveling out of the state of Oklahoma or their first time participating in a national contest. 

What are we raising funds for? 

The team is traveling to Twin Falls, Idaho, this spring for a competitive academic contest. As the team prepares, we are seeking funding to offset the trip cost for the six competing students. Students will compete against students from agricultural schools across the United States. This is always an excellent experience for students to see agricultural operations in a different region and gain new knowledge regarding that production system. This contest also allows students to gain lasting connections with their peers that will become colleagues as they progress into their future careers. 

The funds raised allow students to gain these lifelong experiences without adding additional financial burden to their semester. 

Thank you for your time and consideration!

Thank you for supporting the OSU Crops Team. We look forward to updating you as the students compete.
