Directions to the Sale

From the north: come into Macomb on Hwy. 67. At the north edge of Macomb, just before you get to the city, turn right (west) onto Tower Road at the sign that points the direction to the WIU Livestock Center and WIU golf course. Go one mile west and the WIU Livestock Center is on your left.

From the west: come into Macomb on Hwy. 136 and turn left (north) onto Wigwam Hollow road at the first stop light (there’s a Casey’s at that turn). Follow Wigwam Hollow Road north through two curves and you’ll be at the WIU Livestock Center.

From the east and south: come into Macomb on either Hwy. 136 or 67 (they join at the east edge of Macomb and become Jackson St.), and follow Jackson through Macomb until Highway 67 splits to the north. Go on Hwy. 67 to Tower Road at the very north edge of Macomb. Turn left (west) at the sign that points the direction to the WIU Livestock Center and WIU golf course and go one mile to the WIU Livestock Center, on your left.
