This year marks the 54th Keystone International Livestock Exposition and will feature thousands of farm animals, including beef cattle, sheep, pigs and horses. Pennsylvania Ag Secretary Russell Redding noted 27 states and Canada will all be represented during the event, which takes place from September 27 to October 3.
"For more than half a century, this show has provided Pennsylvania livestock producers the chance to exhibit and promote their livestock on a national level," Redding said.
Of the more than 1,000 exhibitors at the show, almost half are under 21 years old. Redding said the exposition provides young people with a chance to grow and show their skills, which bodes well for the future of agriculture in the state.
Texas is also in the midst of its state fair, which is sponsored by John Deere. That state's ag department will also feature its own staging area, which will give people the chance to learn about nutrition and other farm-related issues.
