This is General Manager of the Central States Fair & BH Stock Show & Rodeo Ron Jeffries’ 26th Stock Show at the reins and he says his staff works hard to put on a great event each year.

“Every year we’ve talked about as a staff and as a board of directors about how do you go about improving, expanding? If you’re not improving, if you’re not expanding, you’re falling behind. And every year we’ve managed to pull things together to bring out new stuff, new activities, and a couple of shifts in the scheduling. And really, it grows every single year,” Jeffries said
