49th annual NILE celebrates Ag and western way of life

Posted: Updated:

The 49th annual Northern International Livestock Exposition kicks off on Saturday, October 15.

The NILE's week of events starts with the Ranch Rodeo.

The NILE communications director says the Ranch Rodeo usually is held the Wednesday before the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association rodeos. But this year they wanted to hold a week's worth of events.

McCall Linke says the NILE encompasses everything that covers agriculture and the western way of life. Linke says, "So there's rodeo, there's livestock shows, there's the Jr. Feed shows which is where the young kids show off their steers, their hogs, their lambs, their goats and it's supporting them so that there's a future for agriculture."

The Ranch Rodeo starts at 7:00p.m. this Saturday at MetraPark.

The PRCA events kick off next Wednesday night. SWX night at the NILE is Thursday, October 20th. KULR-8 night at the NILE is Saturday, October 22nd.
