Those hard working kids from 4-H clubs from around the county are back showing their animals and skills at the Chisago County Fair.
At the 4-H rabbit show on Thursday, the judge awarded champion to a Californian breed owned and shown by Anna Nelson of the Northern Lights 4-H Club. Reserve champion went to a much smaller rabbit, a Netherland Dwarf buck, handled by Willow Weaver of the Height Seekers Club. Both girls and their rabbits qualify for state competition.
Also on Thursday were the 4-H animal science interviews starring beef, sheep, swine, dairy, horse and goats. Open and 4-H poultry judging events were held, too.
Today (Friday) has been busy with swine, sheep and beef judging; the 4-H Horse Show — pleasure and games; the lamb lead at 4 p.m.; and the 4-H Style Show at 5:30 p.m.
And a whole lot more including the WSCA Horse Show and additional 4-H animal shows are planned for Saturday, when the big county fair parade begins at 3 p.m. in Rush City. For a complete schedule of fair events, go to www.chisagocountyfair.org.
