Advantage Agri-Marketing Services partners with Blue Grass Stockyards

Advantage Agri-Marketing Services is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Lexington's Blue Grass Stockyards Regional Marketplace to assist with a wide array of branding, digital marketing and traditional marketing efforts.

In January 2016, the historic stockyards was destroyed by an accidental fire. The 70-year-old business will remain in Fayette County, with state-of-the-art facilities currently under construction near the Kentucky Horse Park. 

The new Blue Grass Stockyards will feature education, retail, dining and office space in addition to its sale barn, becoming the first of its kind in the United States. The new site has already been recognized for its efforts in sustainability, economic impact and overall innovation.

"The opportunity to work with Mr. Akers and the Stockyards staff means so much to us as an ag-based company," said Advantage partner Tyler Clarke. "My family sold cattle at the old location for more than 50 years, so having a role in the future of this local business means a lot to me personally, too. The Regional Marketplace will be a true tourist destination for those interested in the rich history and vibrant future of Kentucky's agricultural industry."
