WKYT - Versailles - Headlines

National TV show pays visit to central Kentucky business

The Discovery Channel's "Dirty Jobs" filmed a segment here in the Bluegrass recently, and it's set to air next week.

The hit series profiles American workers who do the most unthinkable, yet vital, jobs.

The show filmed at Kentucky Equine Research in Versailles to show the tasks of the workers at the facility.

In the past, the host, Mike Rowe, has done everything from cleaning up dead animals, to coal mining.

At Kentucky Equine Research, Rowe had to get samples of manure and urine for testing purposes.

Kentucky Equine Research is a private equine nutrition research company, which works to produce better feed and feed supplements.

The producers of "Dirty Jobs" felt the segment at this facility was so interesting, they will air a one hour episode instead of the normal 30 minutes.

This particular episode will air next Tuesday, November 30, at 9 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.
