Local animals headed to world’s largest, purebred livestock expo PDF Print E-mail

Jordan Stromberger of Imperial has entered two head of market steers in the beef division of the 36th annual North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE).
The NAILE is recognized as the world’s largest purebred livestock show with more than 22,000 entries and nearly $700,000 in prizes and awards.
Scheduled for Nov. 7-20, the event takes place at the Kentucky Exposition Center, Louisville, Ky.
Purebred farms from nearly every state and Canada bring livestock to compete in one of 10 expo divisions: dairy cattle, dairy goats, Boer goats, beef cattle, quarter horses, draft horses, mules and donkeys, sheep, swine and llamas and alpacas.
More than 210,000 American and foreign visitors attend the hundreds of individual breed shows, sales and events.
In addition to the recognition and prize money that comes with winning at the NAILE, the value of the champion breeding stock is significantly enhanced.
The NAILE is produced by the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the Kentucky State Fair Board. It is held at the Commonwealth’s giant Kentucky Exposition Center, which features over 1,200,000 square feet of climate-controlled exhibition space.
