Getting Ready for the Fair
To get our animals ready for the fair, we work with them at home. We go to the pen and put a halter on the animal and lead her to the wash rack. Then we have to wash her.
When we are done washing, we clip the animal. If she is a heifer we clip her whole body. If it is a cow we just clip her head, udder, top line and sometimes her belly depending on how long the hair is. We usually have two people washing and two people clipping so we can go faster and the animals don’t have to stand so long.
