Dairy Goat Judging

Watch your shorts and camera straps.  Goats will nibble on anything.  Loved for their curiosity and mischievous playfulness, goats are also responsible for some delicious dairy products... from milk to cheeses and more.  Fun fact:  The etymology of the phrase "to get someone's goat" is purportedly derived from the practice of putting goats in the stalls of thoroughbreds to calm their nerves before a race.  A sneaky rival would "get the goat" (i.e. remove it from the stall), agitating the horse, and hurting his odds of winning.

4-H Market Auction

Yibbity, yibbity, yibbity--going once, going twice, SOLD to the man in the blue overalls!  From poultry, to livestock, to rabbits and more, our 4-Her's have put in a lot of effort tending to their animals.  Now it's time to support our 4-H Livestock Program at the 4-H Market Auction.  Will you be the high bidder?

Youth Pie Eating Contest

Some are casual pie-eaters.  They take small bites and use their fingers.  Others have turned pie eating into a "no hands" competitive art form.  Which are you?  Come watch the true pie-eating pros, or participate, if you have it in you.  Fortunately, half the calories end up on your face, so it's not as fattening as you might think, and it's definitely a whole lotta fun.

Poultry Evaluations

Cluck-cluck, gobble-gobble, cockadoodle-doo!  Feathers will fly, as chickens, turkeys, geese and more will compete to establish a literal pecking order.  Come see who wins the blue ribbon and emerges as the true cock of the walk.

Beef Cattle Show

They aren't booing, they're saying "Moo!"  Come watch these hefty heifers strut their stuff.  Those who don't win, place or show will definitely have a beef with the judges, but that's to be expected.
