NAILE who is going?

Post by kenny thomas » Wed Oct 25, 2017 9:54 am

Who is going to the North American International Livestock Expo in Louisville, KY? Who is showing? I'm gonna try to go a day or two. October 31-November 16.


My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

I always go up. Definitely won't be showing. Not sure when it'll be, but usually around the angus show.

Hoping to get there this year. Used to go every year, but haven't been for a long time.

I'm always deer hunting this time of year. Wanted to go see some of the Simmentals, might lay off the hunting some this year. Although a 10 point is drawing my attention.

I believe the Red Angus are showing on the 16? (I will have to check on that)... Still not sure what day I am going. I would like to get together and have supper with you guys!

At Ruth's Chris? I might have to make a trip for that. Sure would beat that slice of pizza that Larry bought last time we were in Louisville.
Kill em all and let allah sort them out.

Larry is buying at Ruth Chris I heard. I might have started that rumor though.

Several of my dairy farmers are showing in Louisville in their respective breeds. One of the jersey farms I test for, Waverley Farms, is showing in the Jersey classes. They have some VERY GOOD jersey cattle. Couple of farms showing some Brown Swiss.... I know, that's not beef, but I find it pretty neat that the show draws all breeds; I'd like to go in a year or two after I retire from testing.

I think farmerjan is a little far north to test in Wytheville.
