March 4, 2015 proved to be one of the worst snow storms in Kentucky’s recent history. Many Beef Expo participants arrived on the morning of the 4th in anticipation of the snow event. It proved to be a wise choice. Warmer weather and a diligent road crew made it possible for remaining participants to arrive by late Thursday through early Friday. However, all the weather adversity did not discourage participants and the reward was the best ever Beef Expo sale. The quality was tremendous and the Gelbvieh had the second highest average among all breeds for the Expo.
