Advanced Bucket/Bottle Calf Class Planned For 2017 County Fair
An advanced bucket/bottle calf class will be offered at the 2017 Palo Alto County Fair. The class will be an Open Class for third graders and 4-Hers with a bottle calf exhibited in the 2016 Fair, They will be able to bring that calf back to fair in 2017 and show in a separate class. Judging criteria will remain the same (with continued learning) and include an interview with a judge. Calves must weigh in at beef weigh-in and class determination made at that time. As you select your bucket/bottle calves for this year you may want to consider this and make plans to continue the project after fair. And as an added attraction for the Bucket/Bottle Calf show at the fair this year, a Costume Class will be offered. All exhibitors are being encouraged to plan a costume for themselves and their calves.
