Chelsea Community Fair: lamb, swine, steer, feeder calf youth ready livestock barns
For those who might not know, before you see the livestock shown at the 82nd Chelsea Community Fair, Aug. 20-24, the youth exhibiting their animals help the adults paint the pens and set them up each year.
They tend to their livestock throughout the fair, feeding, watering and cleaning their pens then return the Sunday after fair concludes to help take down the pens and clean the barns as well.
Thursday night, Aug. 8 was set up night and I asked some of the members of the lamb, swine, steer and feeder calf clubs to pose for a photo and to give me their best impressions of the animals they intend to show. (Youth may two two species of animals at fair.)
