SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) – Supporters of the Missouri State Fair have started raising money for a new livestock arena. The new arena would be connected to the existing livestock coliseum. The new facility is designed to provide a place covered by a roof for contest participants to prepare their horses and cattle without getting them wet and muddy. A state finance board has approved up to $343,000 in tax credits for the project to help recruit private donors. The entire project is expected to cost $726,000. The Missouri State Fair Foundation started its capital campaign for the project hoping the state incentives would help entice donations from businesses and agriculture groups.
