Iowa State Fair: Non-Stop Fun!

By Bev Strong

Hear ye, Hear ye! The Iowa State Fair is over for another year. This is worn out Director 5 sending a big THANK YOU for all that attended and helped make the show run smoothly. A big THANK YOU to all who let the wooden bull come back to Montezuma and gave Ronald McDonald a $500 donation. We raised $700 from selling sweatshirts and donated items. There were 81 head that showed in open show and 23 breeders. Several were first timers and we hope you enjoyed yourselves. Most attended BBQ on Wednesday night with hamburgers beans, chips and, of course, Iowa sweet corn. A big thank you to Craig and Terri Warren & Darrel Bailey for working so hard. It was
a good time and nice to meet the new people. The Celebrity Bull Class was fun and I think it made people aware of our breed. We had articles in our Des Moines Register talking about our breed. We had thirteen Celebrities show with all receiving big rosettes saying “I Showed A Miniature Bull At Iowa State Fair.” Baby Bulls received a sash to match. We had two prospect steers show and 9 market steers in the junior division. In the end we had 92 head show. So until next year this is Bev Strong saying “Thanks again!”
