D.W. Wilburn served as the general contractor for the new Bluegrass Stockyards complex, which is to house the largest cattle market east of the Mississippi River. The facility features a 190,000-square-foot sales pavilion and a 40,000-square-foot administrative office on 100 acres of property adjacent to the Kentucky Horse Park on Ironworks Pike. The new complex in rural Fayette County was chosen to replace the former urban site because of the easy access to I-75 and I-64. 

The new Bluegrass Stockyar replaces the historic 10-acre stockyards complex that was destroyed in 2016, by a massive fire.

Project challenges included ensuring nearby communities that siting and environmental controls would prevent groundwater contamination.
