Fair weather, keen competition marked the Pawnee County 4-H Fair

By Ray Kappel

Wasn’t that an exciting 4-H Fair? We were blessed with good weather and a lot of spirit around the Fairgrounds. The whole week was filled with keen competition and drama. For instance, there was the conclusion of the Beef Show.

4-H veterans Clay Schaardt and Dana Christen squared off with their animals for the title of Supreme Champion Market Beef. Schaardt had a Charolais mix steer that had an end weight of 1288 while Christen had an Angus heifer that had an end weight of 1308. As they turned their animals to walk past the judge you could see he had a tough decision to make.
