Beef and Livestock Pavilion Seminars Announced for World Ag Expo 2012

For the second year, World Ag Expo will be home to a 20,000 square foot pavilion dedicated to beef and livestock. The pavilion will include a live demonstration area where exhibitors can showcase their new technology in the beef and livestock industries.

"We had a great response to this year's Beef and Livestock Pavilion, and look forward to an even better pavilion in 2012," said Patty Colson, 2012 World Ag Expo chair.
