Dave Nichols Saddle & Sirloin Portrait

Formed in 1903, the Saddle and Sirloin Gallery is a collection of more than 350 portraits of distinguished livestock industry leaders. Only one person among all species of livestock is honored each year.

This year, Corinne Fetter, executive director of expositions for the Kentucky State Fair Board, has announced that the Saddle and Sirloin Portrait Gallery inductee is Dave Nichols of Bridgewater, Iowa.

Because of his national and international achievements and leadership in the beef cattle industry, Nichols is a deserving recipient of this supreme honor. He was a pioneer in beef cattle performance measures, as he adapted new technologies into his family's purebred herds and championed the practices while serving on state and national association boards.

Across the board, Dave Nichols is held in high regard by beef cattle producers, educators and researchers.

The 2015 induction ceremony is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15 in the South Wing Conference Center at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, held in conjunction with the 42nd North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE).
