This past weekend I headed across the state line to the Iowa State Fair, and trust me the people of Iowa like to tell you how big of a deal it is. It's the state fair of all state fairs, and it did a pretty good job of living up to it's reputation.
The boy was showing Herefords so inbetween working on the cattle and tack box socializing he showed me the finer aspects of the fair.
First stop the butter cow.
I also thought I better post a little corn since I haven't been able to do my corn report for awhile. This is actually a variety of popcorn. Fun fact of the day, did you know a popcorn kernal won't pop if there is a dent it in. Thank you Butler Community College Crop Science class.
And finally I have been getting some requests on seeing a picture of this boy that I reference too. Well here you go.
Just working on some Hereford cattle. He had a great day at the show, exhibiting the Reserve Champion Horned Bull, and had second in class with his bred heifer. I can't wait to be back there again next year.
