The “Farm Experience” is a series of events at the Arizona National Livestock Show designed to educate people, especially children, about farm animals, their care, and their importance in agriculture. These events focus on providing information and interactive experiences to teach attendees about various aspects of livestock production.
The ultimate goal is that the events at the Farm Experience help to foster an appreciation for livestock production and encourage responsible and sustainable practices in agriculture and an understanding of where our food comes from.
Sponsored by the Robert Kemper Corrigan Foundation, The Farm Experience at the Arizona National Livestock Show educates youth about agriculture through fun activities and interactive learning stations.

The top two places in each age group from each performance will return to compete in the finals for the coveted title of Li’l Buckaroo Champion of their age group. Even though only one contestant goes home as champion, each contestant will go home with a prize for their courageous effort.
