  • McBurney’s having a Hay Day

    For some time, Chris McBurney has taken part in field days throughout the southern United States.

    Now McBurney, who owns and operators McBurney Livestock Equipment in New Castle, wants to share that concept with local farmers. “There’s not a lot of that going on here,” McBurney said. “Most farm shows are several hours away.”

    With that in mind, he and other local distributors came up with the idea for North Central Kentucky Hay Day.

    It will be held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, May 12, at the Henry County Fairgrounds.
