The 53rd Keystone International Livestock Exposition (KILE)  at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg. We look forward to hosting some of the nation’s best cattle, sheep, swine and horses here in the Keystone State.

As always, the cattle department has a full schedule including one of six national Hereford shows, the Limousin breed’s “Medal of Excellence” Level II show, and the official Pennsylvania State Shorthorn Show that is designated as the Atlantic Major Pace Show. For the eighth year, Red Angus, Highland and Texas Longhorn cattle will show, along with Galloway and MaineTainers for the fifth year, and Charolais for the fourth year as a regional points show. Angus, Simmental and Maine-Anjou will also be exhibited. Three breed sales are set for Angus, Hereford and Shorthorn in addition to the popular Club Calf Sale and the Prospect Heifer Sale.

The fourth annual Youth Beef Benefit Auction is slated, with proceeds going to the Beef Scholarship program. For the third year, two beef youth will receive $1,000 and $500 scholarships.

Again this year, all swine breeds will be featured in the Keystone Classic Show and Sale – Berkshire, Chester White, Duroc, Hampshire, Landrace, Poland China, Spotted Swine and Yorkshire. A barrow show is also scheduled along with the Live Hog Evaluation Contest on Sunday of show week. The National Junior Swine Association will host its ninth Eastern Regional Show.

In the sheep department, several national shows are set including the National Tunis Show, National Junior Southdown Show, Eastern Regional Southdown Open Show, and the Eastern Regional Hampshire Show. Eight sheep breeds will host ewe sales in addition to the fifth year of Natural Colored fines and mediums. The ever-popular Leadline will be held on Saturday of the show.

Supreme champion males and females will be named from all three species – beef, swine and sheep.

Back again is the qualifying show for the North American Six Horse Hitch that pits 25 of the nation’s top-rated six horse hitches in competition for 2010 national championship.

Draft horses will also shine in the All Breeds Classic Series Six Horse Hitch Show during Friday night’s program.

The two-day Halflinger Show returns for the fourth year, along with the one-day, two-judge Appaloosa Show that is double-pointed. KILE will once again host the Regional Shire Show and Pasa Fino and Quarterhorse shows.

Youth will have the chance to shine in the Collegiate and Junior Livestock Judging Contest and the Keystone Stockman’s Contest, as well as during the Pennsylvania High School Rodeo event on Oct. 3 and 4.

Returning is the Keystone Classic Barbeque, a fully-sanctioned Kansas City Barbeque Society contest, on Oct. 2 and 3. Pennsylvania’s Governor Edward G. Rendell proclaimed the event a “state championship” which allows the winner to receive an automatic invitation to compete in the two largest barbeque contests in the country.

The 2009 KILE is on target to be the best yet with the nation’s best livestock animals and contests. Whether you attend as an exhibitor or a spectator, the show should exceed your expectations. Mark your calendars and we’ll see you at the show!
