In the Casper College Agriculture Department, we believe that the most successful students are not only those that excel in the classroom, but also are ones that actively participate in activities that are offered on campus. The Oil City Ag Club is the largest club found on campus with membership of around 35-45 members a year. Many of its activities include: the Adopt a Highway Program, annually hosting a Club Calf Sale in the fall and a Lamb and Pig sale in the spring, and social activities such as a Thanksgiving dinner and card tournaments.
The Livestock Judging Club annually hosts spring and fall livestock judging contests which are attended regularly by 125-150 4-H and FFA members from the Wyoming, Colorado, and Montana. Members of the Livestock Judging Club also provide annual livestock training in Driggs, ID, coupled with a ski trip. Livestock Judging Club member serve as leaders at our annual livestock judging camp that was held in Elko, NV and has since been moved to Jerome, ID.
The Casper College Rodeo Club is historic club that dates back to the start of the department. They volunteer throughout the year to help put on local events such as jackpot ropings, the Chris Ledoux Memorial Rodeo and most importantly, the Casper College Ropin' and Riggin' Days Rodeo held every April.
Casper College Ag students are very active in student government (two faculties were also senators as students) and other campus clubs such as intramural sports, Forensics/Debate and College Republicans. We have also had a very strong tie with the Wyoming FFA Association and have taught numerous State FFA Officers during their terms.
