On Oct. 6, 7 and 8, visitors descended upon the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Mo., for the largest farm and ranch show in the Ozarks featuring the latest in agricultural technology and rural living products and services. With 800 booths and over 500 head of registered livestock at the show, visitors found plenty to see during the Farmfest weekend. Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) was one of the trade show booth participants at this year’s Farmfest. As part of the booth, several BBU breeders had Beefmaster cattle on display. The following breeders displayed their cattle: Lawrence and Connie Shuey: Berachiah Beefmasters, Paul and Rhonda Wallen: Wallen Prairie Ranch, Craig and Karen Johnson: St. Clair Beefmasters, and Jared and Brandi Gentry: Gentry Family Farms. Vaughn Family Farms also had a booth on display without cattle and Berachiach Beefmasters also had a booth on display next to the BBU booth. The BBU breeders present at the show handed out Beefmaster literature, promotional items and copies of The Beefmaster Pay Weight. There was so much traffic at the trade show that they ran out of Beefmaster literature. Admission is free to the event and over 35,000 people visit the festival every year and a majority of these people make their way through the cattle barns, where the Beefmaster booths and cattle are on display.
