Today’s youth will shape the future of the agriculture industry, which is why they’re a central focus at NAILE. The Expo welcomes young participants — from the curriculum it offers student groups to its seven major youth judging contests, and all the 4-H/FFA members who show livestock leading up to the Sale of Champions.
