Ag Day is a long-standing tradition and celebration of Colorado agriculture and CSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences. Starting in 1981, Ag Day is hosted by CSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences along with Colorado agricultural organizations and associations. It is a time when we can come to the table together to honor our roots and the agricultural producers that provide for our community. The pregame event features the state’s agricultural growers and producers preparing Colorado’s premier outdoor barbecue from quality Colorado food products to fund scholarships for agricultural sciences students. This tradition honors both the institution’s roots and Colorado’s rich agricultural history in a celebration that appeals to all ages.

Starting in 2019, the Nutrien Ag Day BBQ is made possible by Nutrien.

The future of agriculture lies with the next generation, which is why CSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences proudly invests time, energy and resources into its long-standing relationship with our country’s youth. That includes programs around 4-H, Future Farmers of America, Ag Adventure with grade-schoolers and beyond.

For the 5th year, Ag Day and Colorado 4-H will be celebrated together. Colorado 4-H will host an assortment of activities involving STEM and Ag Education. Colorado 4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults.

This year’s Nutrien Ag Day BBQ marks a special milestone as the 40th annual Ag Day! Come out in support of Colorado agriculture and celebrate 150 years of Ram pride.
