And the winning carcass is....
Hollywood has the Emmys and MTV Awards, we have the Carcass Contest Awards! Yesterday marked the last of the award season for FFA and 4H with the Carcass Evaluation Awards. This is my favorite because it truly reflects the commercial aspect of raising livestock. It doesn't matter if someone is popular or not, it doesn't matter how clean and groomed the animal is. What matters is how much and what kind of meat you get off the animal. Veronica Tilton does an excellent job at explaining how the evaluation and grading is done, and it's not a simple process. Meanwhile, all the participants and their families do an excellent job at bringing a potluck! That is a simple process; they bring the food and I eat too much of it! Thanks to everyone for their hard work, now it's time to get ready for next year.

To John and All the Staff at the Farigrounds - What a great fair you put on and many thanks to all of you for all your hours and hard work. I'm pretty sure most can't even imagine what it takes to put the fair on but I for one after watching all of you run around all week making sure lights are on, bathrooms are clean and working, animals are cared for, and the endless list of daily activities that we all take for granted that you and your staff are the reason they work so smoothly. Thanks for seriously making this a fun event for our communities, and for all who visit.
