A few local residents showed livestock at this year’s state fair. Keota resident Lauren Sieren exhibited the champion commercial gilt in the 4-H Breeding Swine Show judged last week in Des Moines. A gilt is a female pig that has never been pregnant. In the 4-H Market Beef show on Wednesday, the steer Kalona native Emma Troyer showed was named the reserve champion angus. The Iowa State Fair began on the 7th and wraps up today.
