Industry Tours will be offered with two options, each of these options will allow the opportunity to see some of the most scenic and historic areas of the state as well as stops at horse farms.

Option 1: Purebred focus – This tour will take you to three of the most progressive purebred operations in the state representing two breeds of cattle and each of the breeders representing different approaches to marketing and focus in their breeding programs. One of the stops also maintains a large commercial operation as well and will provide ample opportunity for exposure to that side of our industry. This leg of the tour will also stop at one of the oldest and most historic thoroughbred horse farms in central Kentucky.

Option 2: Commercial focus – On this tour you will see three commercial operations in east central Kentucky. The first stop is strictly cow/calf, the second is a cow/calf and backgrounding operation with a tremendous forage/rotational grazing program, and the third is the largest backgrounding operation in this area of the state. We will also tour one of the most prestigious thoroughbred operations in the country while on this tour.
