With their local shows in the rearview mirror, youth from Door and Kewaunee Counties hit the Wisconsin State Fair this weekend in search of success. Kewaunee County’s Charlene Robinson, Isabella Haen, and Paige Bellin along with Door County’s Katie Guilette participated in Monday’s Fairest of the Fair reunion while local projects lined the Wisconsin State Fair’s youth exposition hall. Busy Badger 4-H member Matthew Boeder arrived at the fair earlier this week with his rabbits and sheep along with other project participants. He says showing at the state fair is a lot different than the county fair.
Royal Raider 4-H member Marie Prodell is the lone Kewaunee County representative exhibiting in the beef show, but she says it is a great time for her to catch up with other exhibitors in the Wisconsin Junior Hereford Association.
You will be able to catch a glimpse of the projects exhibited by youth from Door and Kewaunee Counties through the Wisconsin State Fair’s close on August 11th. Later this week we will catch up with members of the Kewaunee County Dairy Project, which won over 10 supreme, grand, or reserve champion awards for their cattle.
