Stockyards Event Center (SYEC)

Show Arena

The Show Arena, formerly known as the Pepsi Arena, is now twice the size and shares a wall with the Sale Arena. At 100’ x 90’ compared to a 45’ x 30’ in the old facility. (Photo will be updated soon!)

SHOW RING LAYOUT: The black ovals in the drawings, represent cattle. The dotted lines are hoop gates to create holding pens or individual group division. Also, note the rounded corners so cattle don't get trapped in them. While in an actual setting, both rings very well may be used, but mesh coverings over the center divider panels and separated AV systems will assure separation. Note: There is also an audio/PA system from the announcer's stand to the outdoor staging/photo/production area.

Sale Arena

The new sale arena replaces the old sale barn in the yards commonly referred to as the LCAA.
