Located in the Flint Hills between the Neosho and Cottonwood Rivers, Emporia is a commercial and shipping center for the surrounding cattle and farm region. The city has grain elevators; stockyards; industries processing beef and soybeans; and plants producing printing equipment, baked goods, cheese, and steel tanks.
