5 Days of Thanks: Swine Exhibitors

5 Days of Thanks: Swine Exhibitors

By on 11/21/2017

After another successful North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE), we want to thank all of our exhibitors who make NAILE great. The show wouldn’t be anything without you, your family and your animals.  On the second day of our five days of thanks, we want to highlight the swine exhibitors. Here are a few of the faces from this year’s expo.
