Washington area farmer Carol Horning and her husband are camping at the Iowa State Fair this week. Horning says she’s seen and spoke with many Washington County residents, and area youth are preparing for cattle shows this week. Yesterday was the 4-H Cattle Breeding Heiffer Show, today is the Hog Derby Show and the 4-H Hog Show is scheduled for tomorrow, all of which have multiple contestants from Washington County. Horning says yesterday’s rain made the fair “a mess” but did not affect activities. Stay tuned to KCII for updates from Washington County residents at this week’s Iowa State Fair.
