NC Mountain State Fair Results!

It’s hard to believe that the 2010 NC Mountain State Fair is already over! With close to 200,000 people in attendance, and all of the food vendors, clogging, music concerts, amusement rides and games, pig races, petting zoos, camel rides, animal displays, vendors, and craft demonstrations, it’s even harder to believe that our Buncombe 4-H’ers had the time to enter any of the exhibits, competitions or livestock championships! And…. It turns out that many of you did enter in multiple categories and placed! Congratulations to everyone who participated – we are very proud of you all!

There were many entries in the livestock judging competitions – many of which were Buncombe 4-H’ers! The judges were looking for showmanship skills, knowledge and proper animal handling, as well as the general appearance of the animals, their mammary systems, their dairy characteristics, their body size, their ability to consume food and their willingness to milk. Congratulations to all of our 4-H’ers who participated in the livestock judging competitions – the list of winners is below!

Congratulations to all of our 4-H’ers who participated in this year’s exhibits, competitions and livestock championships! We are VERY proud of all of you! If Erin has accidently missed any of your accomplishments, please be sure to let her know so that she can add it to the Clover Gazette! We sure do like to brag about all of your achievements!
