COLUMBUS — Today, the 2017 Ohio Beef Expo officially gets underway at the state fairgrounds in Columbus, and is celebrating its 30th year.

We thought we’d see what photos were hidden in our archives over those years and, while we didn’t uncover any from the very first few years, we did find some golden oldies.

So take a look at this photo gallery and see if you see anyone you recognize. And if you’re at the Beef Expo, stop by our booth to say hello.
