Come to the Warren County Fair Monday Aug. 5 through Friday Aug. 9 and visit with the Warren County Dairy Princess Rachel Campbell and her court. The Dairy Princess will be housed in the 4-H Dairy Barn all week passing out goody bags, recipe brochures and talking with the public about the importance of dairy products in your daily diet. You will also see lots of dairy cows. Do you think you could find all seven major dairy breeds? Our dairy farmers will be there to show off their excellent dairy animals and be able to answer any questions you may have about how they take care of their cows at home. Stop by the milking parlor in the afternoon and watch a cow being milked. The parlor runs everyday twice a day to milk our show cows.
On Tuesday afternoon come cheer on the 4-H Dairy Club members as they will be competing in their fitting competition to see who can give their cows the best hair cut. On Wednesday they will be competing against each other in showmanship and type classes. On Thursday all dairy exhibitors will be competing to win the Best Bred & Owned & Supreme honors.
On Friday afternoon at 4 pm Campbell there will be a Celebrity Milking contest and on Saturday, Aug. 10 at 2 p.m. there will be ice cream treat by the milking parlor.
