Northeast Livestock Expo Takes Shape
Although this event will be of interest to those in the livestock industries, the general public is welcomed and encouraged to attend.
Several livestock organizations have worked through the winter months to stage a combined livestock show and sale—the Northeast Livestock Expo—at the Windsor Fairgrounds to be held from May 18 through May 20, 2007. Building on the success of the Maine-New England Beef Expo, traditionally held at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds, the show and sale will include sheep and Boer goats as well as cattle. A check-in with Clint Giustra, Livestock Specialist here at the Department of Agriculture, reveals that to date 50 lots of purebred cattle, including Angus, Hereford, Belted Galloway, Maine Anjou and Simmental, have been consigned for sale. In addition, nearly 150 head of preconditioned feeder cattle have been consigned. Over 75 head of market lambs and purebred sheep will be for sale, as well as, 100 Boer goats.
Over the three days, there will be shows for cattle, sheep and goat breeds and a horse show on May 19 and 20. The Expo will also feature a large commercial livestock-related trade show. Mark your calendars for this important show and sale. In addition to being a livestock show and sale, the Expo is a great educational opportunity, and the general public is welcomed and encouraged to attend.
