CO Simmental News: Reaction to The NebraskaN’s Cancellation

It is with a sad heart, that the NebraskaN Livestock Show officials have reported that the one-year alternative expo set for January 2021 in Grand Island has been CANCELLED. 

Like National Western Stock Show, Fort Worth Stock Show, the Arizona National, etc, the NebraskaN is a casualty of coronavirus restrictions.

We thank the expo officials, including Van Neidig and Bill Angell, for their countless hours of preparation in an effort to offer an excellent marketing opportunity and show venue to all cattlemen.

Colorado Simmental wishes to thank the Nebraska Simmental Association board for their willingness to jointly host the 2021 expo in Grand Island. The teamwork in the last couple months has been amazing. CSA also gives its thanks to American Simmental for support, to sponsors who have stepped forward, and the outstanding officials who were lined up to evaluate the entries. 

On behalf of the CSA board,Sec. Susan S. Russell
