The Master Showman Contest is a contest design to take the top two showman of each species (dairy, beef, swine, sheep, and goat) and have them compete against each other. Each showman has to show all 5 species and exhibit knowledge in the ag industry. Julia enjoyed the contest and learned a lot and hopes to participate in it again in the future. “I want to thank my parents who have helped me a lot this summer with my animals, and also my brother for coming home and helping me fit my projects.” - Julia

County Fair Spotlight #3 Alexis is an eighth year member of the Dairyland Diamonds 4-H Club and a third year member of the Iowa-Grant FFA Chapter where she serves as Secretary. Alexis exhibited three Brown Swiss cows and four Brown Swiss heifers at the Grant County Fair. All her animals placed second or first in their classes. Two of her cows were selected as Grand and Reserve Grand Champion of the Brown Swiss show and her heifer, Junebug, was Reserve Junior Champion Brown Swiss. Alexis also had the opportunity to lead Junebug to a 3rd place finish in Senior Showmanship and won the fitting contest that qualified her to sell a cheese basket in the Grant County Fair auction. Alexis’ favorite part about showing are the memories and friendships she makes. She enjoys looking back on how she did to better prepare for the next show and grow as a showman. She also really enjoys watching her hard work pay off when her cattle do well in the showring. Alexis would like to thank Thoma Fencing for the purchase of her cheese basket in the auction along with Royal Bank for being the contending bidder. Alexis would also like to thank her Dad for all he does to ensure her success throughout the show season. She believes nothing would be possible without his support. Lastly, she would like to thank everyone who helped her throughout the week at the fair. Exhibiting 7 animals at the fair alone isn’t always the easiest thing, so all of the extra help is greatly appreciated!
