Livestock Exhibitors

10,000-14,000 friendly visitors want to admire your animals.

Animals are the heart of agriculture in most people’s minds; they are certainly major contributors to the excellence of the Four States Ag Expo. We invite livestock breeders and operators of all kinds to round up the best of their herds and flocks and show them off at the Four States Ag Expo.

Goats, geese, cattle, sheep, alpacas, llamas, rabbits… the list seems endless. Don’t forget the horses, donkeys, burros and miniatures! Bring ‘em all! Pen prices are reasonable.
