Illinois Beef Expo scheduled in-person for February

The 2021 Illinois Beef Expo is currently scheduled to be an in-person event on February 25-28th.

Illinois Beef Association Executive Vice President Jill Johnson tells Brownfield the board feels it is too early to decide to alter the event.

“If restrictions put in place due to COVID-19 remain similar to what we are experiencing now or become more restrictive there might be some decisions that have to be made regarding how we would normally hold that.”

Johnson says there are still a lot of unknowns, but if changes are made, they will be done in a timely manner giving exhibitors and participants time to make adjustments.

“There is some time here to make sure we are putting our best foot forward and holding an event that those that always come to the beef expo want to participate in, but also balancing what we know we are going to need in terms of social distancing and the pandemic we are dealing with.”

Updated information about the 2021 Illinois Beef Expo is available at and on the Illinois Beef Expo Facebook page.
