Hacker enters seven sheep at NAILE

Monday, October 19, 2009

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Katie Hacker of Cloverdale has entered seven head of sheep in the Junior Romney 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.

Purebread 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 shoes, sales and events.

In addition to the recognition and prize money that comes with winning at the NAILE, the value of a champion breeding stock is significantly enhanced.
