Kentucky agriculture than horse racing. The state’s top agricultural
commodities include broilers, corn, horses and mules, soybeans,
cattle and calves, tobacco, dairy products, wheat, hay, and eggs.
The agricultural organizations within the state are working
together to come up with a topnotch exhibit that will give each Expo
visitor a real appreciation for the farming expertise that can be found
in the Bluegrass State. You can find the Kentucky exhibit at location
B- 6 on the exhibit grounds.
Expo also offers great family entertainment. Some exhibits will
have musical performers, and the American Grand Finals stock dog
competition offers great entertainment for visitors who can sit and
watch the action from well-shaded bleacher seats. Stock dog trials
will take place with continuous competition throughout all three
days of the show.
