The Northeast Livestock Expo (NELE) will take place May 15 to 17 in Windsor, Maine. During Kid’s Day on May 15, more than 1,200 K-6 students will have their classroom at the Windsor Fairgrounds. They will experience thirty agricultural presentations put on by farmers and industry volunteers. This three-day livestock event will showcase beef and dairy cattle, sheep, goats and rabbits.
The public is welcome to all events and admission is free.
“This is a great opportunity for kids to learn about Maine agriculture,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “This and similar agricultural events this summer and fall highlight the connection between local farms, local products and consumers.”
Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Commissioner Walt Whitcomb highlighted the Expo’s educational component.
“The Northeast Livestock Expo continues to grow every year. The popular “Kid’s Day” will have over 1,200 K-6 students learning about proper care of farm animals and becoming more informed consumers,” said Whitcomb. “There will be youth events and educational seminars also occurring on Saturday and Sunday. Many future agricultural leaders will be in Windsor this weekend.”
