Northeast Livestock Expo
The Northeast Livestock Expo (NELE) offers a unique opportunity for livestock producers to market premier breeding stock, meat animals, and participate in educational seminars to ensure food safety and quality farm products. In addition, NELE brings together youth for a weekend-long learning experience as they exhibit livestock and develop related skills and knowledge through competitions such as youth shows, a youth cook-off, marketing and judging competitions. The general public is invited to see, learn about and gain a better understanding of livestock commodities and the agricultural industry as a whole. The NELE Commercial Trade Show supports agricultural-related businesses by giving them the opportunity to exhibit their products and services. A variety of food vendors and the availability of on-site camping help to contribute to a great family-friendly atmosphere for a fun weekend of agriculture. The Northeast Livestock Expo is traditionally held during the third weekend in May at the Windsor Fairgrounds in Windsor, Maine. NELE is a non-profit organization governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors.
