About Red Wave
Red Wave Classic Show and Sale
The Red Wave Sale gives students the opportunity to gain "hands on" experience in merchandising of show livestock. Students plan the sale in advance including advertisements, prepare the livestock for sale and then help coordinate and conduct the actual sale. Both lambs and meat goats are sold as part of the Red Wave Sale that is usually held the second Saturday in January each year.
The Red Wave Show is designed to provide students "hands on" experience in the preparation, management, and hosting of a junior livestock show. Junior livestock exhibitors from mainly California with a few from surrounding states attend each year. It is held at the Big Fresno Fair. It is a cooperative event that is put by Fresno State with a great deal of help from the outstanding staff at the Big Fresno Fair. The show serves as a tremendous recruiting activity for the Department of Animal Sciences and Agricultural Education at Fresno State.
Both events are sponsored by Farmers Best Feed with the assistance from numerous other companies that provide financial and other types of support. The other major sponsor of the livestock show is Sullivan Supply. Students that participate in both events are expected to represent Fresno State in a courteous and professional manner.
