The first ever Washington County Spring Preview Cattle Show will be a week from today (4/18) at the fairgrounds. It’s expected to bring about 400 people from all over Iowa to compete. Tim Messenger is a 4-Her who was on the committee that helped bring the show to Washington. He says it’s a good way to get ready for other events. In conjunction with the show, 4-H groups are having a pancake and more breakfast from 7:00 am to 10:30 in the basement of the fairgrounds building. Adults are $6-dollars and kids under 12 are $4-dollars. Proceeds will go towards Washington County Fair improvements. The cattle show will begin at 11:30 am April 18.
