the ohio beef expo
The Ohio Beef Expo is the premier event for Ohio’s beef industry. It is a cattle producer focused event that provides critical farm income for the cattle families and rural small businesses that participate in it. The 2021 Beef Expo includes a reformatted schedule of cattle sales, a retail trade show and a youth cattle show. Several educational events have been discontinued to comply with state health orders.
