To create celebratory events in a unique setting to unite rural and urban lifestyles and to learn more about the beef producer-to-consumer journey.
The Aggieville Showdown is like no other cattle jackpot show in the nation. This unique show on April 1, 2023 starts at the Riley County Fairgrounds where exhibitors will compete to have the chance to show their market prospect cattle or breeding heifers in the streets of the Aggieville Business District. The judges will select the Grand & Reserve Champion for the market & breeding cattle divisions. While in Aggieville, exhibitors will be awarded cash prizes, and public attendees will enjoy live music, a fashion show, shopping, and other performances and experiences.
The idea of the national cattle jackpot show came to fruition in the heart of Aggieville in June 2019 between close friends who share a passion for agriculture education. The show was developed to celebrate American beef producers while advancing exhibitor’s and the public’s knowledge about the livestock industry. The first inaugural Aggieville Showdown was held in April of 2021 and our team looks forward to continuing the annual event to unite exhibitors, students, businesses, and all public to celebrate agriculture in the ‘Ville!
