What is considered to be the largest and most prestigious poultry show in America?
The Ohio National.
The Cross Roads at Indy.
Ohio Nationals is an every year occasion in November, in Columbus, OH.
Crossroads of America Show is every few years in Indianapolis, IN. The last year it was held was 2006, one week after the ON. Next show date for the COA is 2011. It is larger than the ON, but the ON is quite impressive itself with thousands of entries.
That was a great year and a great experience to be able to attend both shows. Those two shows are the Mothers of all shows. I can't wait to attend both again in 2011.
The Ohio National Poultry Show in Columbus. It's a great show! If you google it, you can find info on it.....it's coming up soon.
somebody told me nationals are in Oklahoma this year...is that true ? and its ABA is in Ohio this year.
My freinds and neighbors the Faulkner family will be at the Ohio show in November , please stop by and say hello to them..Jackson and Angela and the kids..They are super Nice people..I think they are taking 150 birds that have won at different shows around the east coast. Tell them you know Lynne the australorp lady...They love to talk chicken
The name of the Show is the Ohio National, it doesn't indicate what meets are there--a little confusing. The APA and ABA National meets are placed at different shows around the country so everyone has a chance to attend one that's 'closer' every once in awhile.
Year after year, Ohio National is the best show I've gone to. If I was only able to go to one, it would be Ohio--we made our Hotel reservations this weekend for this year!
This is always a good show and it is a national show.

The Ohio National may be a big show and is held every year, but when I went last year I wasn't overly impressed with the quality of the birds.
I was imagining seeing all these wonderful birds that us folk out here in the west can't compare to, but what I found was that we have just as good if not better birds out here. It is a big show though in numbers.
I think you will find some nice birds at any APA or ABA sanctioned show no matter where you go.
