Today was a great day at the Dakota County Fair. Our family participated in the Open Class Dairy Show. I was going to blog and tweet directly from the fair, but for some reason my data connection on my phone wasn’t working. Ohh well. So here are a few pictures from today.
Here is short video of today’s judge, Larry Tande, explaining why the novice class is important.
Today was a success. We walked away with many first and second place ribbons. Our family also won Champion Brown Swiss. When I tucked Erik in bed tonight, he asked if he could show again tomorrow. Tomorrow is the 4-H show. Sam and three young adults who lease from us will be participating. In Minnesota, you need to be selected as the top from your county before you can participate in the 4-H show at the MN State Fair. This is Sam’s last year in 4-H; we hope that she does well. She needs to be in the top nine.
