ABOUT

The California Youth Ag Expo is THE SHOW! Formed in 2020, the CYAE is open to all youth cattle, sheep, goats and swine exhibitors from California. Welcome to THE SHOW!

Curtis Bayne and Jake and Molly Parnell are the visionaries behind the CYAE. In the spring of 2020, these three set out to form a competitive show for the youth on the West Coast. Together, the California Youth Ag Expo was formed.

To do this, they brought the leaders in the livestock show industry, the team at the Oklahoma Youth Expo, out west to manage the show for our 4-H and FFA students.

The 3rd Annual California Youth Ag Expo will be August 3 through August 7 in Tulare, California at the International Agri-Center.
