Plan for 2015 NAILE Angus Events

Deadlines approaching for the North American International Livestock Exposition.

In a few short months, Angus cattle enthusiasts will travel to Louisville, Ky., for shows and events during the 2015 North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE). From competitive events in the showring to a prestigious honor for Angus breeder Dave Nichols, Bridgewater, Iowa, the week’s activities begin Sunday, Nov. 15.

All shows will begin at 8 a.m. in the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center (KFEC) Freedom Hall. The Angus Junior Heifer Show takes place Sunday, Nov. 15; the Super-Point Roll of Victory (ROV) shows for bulls, cow-calf pairs and females (in that order) will be Monday, Nov. 16. Bruce and Amie Stertzbach of Louisville, Ohio, will judge the ROV Show. The junior show judges are to be announced.

If you’re exhibiting at the NAILE, the entry deadline is Oct. 1. The ownership deadline for the Angus Junior Heifer Show is Sept. 15. For more information or to submit entries, visit www.livestockexpo.org.

Saddle & Sirloin Induction Ceremony

Nichols has been selected as the 2015 inductee into the Saddle and Sirloin Portrait Gallery, largely considered the highest honor in the livestock industry. Nichols is a current member of the American Angus Association Board of Directors, and Nichols Farms has grown under his leadership to encompass 5,500 acres, 1,500 head of breeding stock and a small feedlot.

The Saddle & Sirloin Club will honor these and Dave’s other industry contributions, too numerous to list, during a special program and portrait unveiling at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15, in the South Wing Conference Center of the KFEC.

Supporters can purchase ceremony tickets or make charitable gifts toward portrait and banquet expenses in Nichols’ honor. For more information, visit www.nicholssaddleandsirloin.com.

If you are attending or exhibiting at Angus events in Louisville, Ky., please plan now and secure a hotel room. The Crowne Plaza will serve as the Angus headquarters hotel, and rooms are available for $135 per night. Give them a call at 1-888-233-9527 or go online for more information. The room block ends Oct. 16.
