It was a gorgeous day two at the 124th annual Carlton County Fair as folks from all over the state went to Barnum to join in on the fun.
The 4H Dairy Show started at 10 a.m. on Friday and Katie Line's cow took first place. This is her first year in 4H so she admits she was a little nervous.
"Because this is my first year," Line said. "I didn't know how my cow was going to act."
A couple stalls over, we met Sydney Anderson who was cleaning her goat's hooves. This is her third year in 4H, but she said her goad is a little unique.
"She's half dairy, half meet," said Anderson."The dairy you have to milk but she has part meat so you don't have to milk her. It just kind of makes her a better goat because the bores don't have a good personality like the dairy."
We met John and Jim Stracek in the bird house. As 9-year veterans, they said they know what the judges are looking for.
"For chickens, we wash them before the fair because sometimes they get a little messy," said John Stracek. "and sometimes we put vaseline on their combs to make them shiny."
Whether you go to the fair for the animals, the music, the history, or the food, some say the attractions at this vintage fair are hidden treasures.
