The event is always wellattended and it’s a good way for the exhibitors to either change or improve on their animals or technique before the fairs begin.

Intermediate 12 and 13 years old as of Jan. 1, Junior 10 and 11 years old as of Jan. 1 and Beginners 9 and under as of Jan. 1

There are 11 dairy breed classes and they are Alpine Grade Dairy Cross, LaMancha, Nigerian, Nubian, Oberhasli, Saanen, Sable, Taggenburg, Pygmy and non-dairy or crosses such as Boer, Fainter and Angora.

She admits that sometimes there is a fine line in deciding who gets first and who gets second.

“The animals are judged on their legs as to how they are angled, their withers and mammary glands,” said Lohman-Peterson. “Sometimes I need a factor that makes the final decision and that is the general appearance of the mammary system.

“I also watch the exhibitor and know which kids do the chores on a regular basis and they know their animal very well,” Lohman- Peterson said.

Results for the day were furnished by Julia Bozic.
