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

Probably, but not a lot of Jersey herds around
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

I have actually bought a few herd bulls at the North American over the years. They melt like a popcycle, when you get them home though. I'll probably bring a little folding money, and a trailer, if somebody needs a haul.

I never buy cattle, just supplies and gather info. Meet people and make connections.

If you like seeing a lot of very good cattle and equipment yes it is. I have stayed 1 day up to 4 days in the past.

I definitely think it is worth going to, there are high profile breed shows, watched the National Charolais show there. Lots of equipment and other types of vendors, in what used to be and may still be called the world's largest country store.

I hope to make it one day as NAILE is one of the few places my breed is still shown.

I am not going, although I sure would like to.
I have a heifer that will be showing there. Simme Valley Elexa, shown by Taylor Ferguson, from Indiana. Her sister will probably be showing. She bought Chrome & this calf last year out of the Gettysburg Stars & Stripes Sale. They have a 4-H group with Charolais, Shorthorn Plus, etc.
