Several young Washington County fair participants have received honors at the Iowa State Fair.  Ty Sexton of Ainsworth showed the champion bull in the all other breeds category, as well as the reserve champion in the all other breeds – cow and calf category.

Also receiving recognition was Shelby Moothart of Fairfield, who presented the reserve champion in the shorthorn heifer category.

The beef show took place yesterday at the Outdoor Arena at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.
