Bucks Country 4-H goes to Show

At the Middletown Grange Fair, 4-H members from all throughout Bucks County gathered to showcase their animal projects. There were almost 600 animals at this year’s fair, including alpacas, beef and dairy cattle, goats, poultry, rabbits and cavies, sheep, swine, and even a lone llama. Members worked with their animals all summer long to get themselves and their animals ready to enter these show rings. And what a show it was! These members could be seen using every available hour washing, clipping, and otherwise beautifying their animals and when these animals entered the ring you could tell that they were looking their very best.
