Recap of Fair Events
I had a good year at the fair. Besides winning Junior Dairy Showmanship with me, Edith won Junior Reserve Dairy. My pigs won Grand Champion Pen of Hogs. I also won Grand Champion Hog at our community fair.
A nice thing about showing dairy animals is that you can bring them back the next year in an “older” class and they are already used to the halter and already trained. However, once she is a cow you have to teach her a different way to “stand” in the ring. Heifers stand with their back leg that is closest to the judge back. Cows stand with the leg closet to the judge forward so you can see their udder better.
I also entered a rocket that I made into the fair. I designed the rocket so that once it reaches its highest point, two gliders and a parachute will pop out. I received an A rating on this.
