Wednesday June 12 Recap

Our exhibitors were undeterred by the last day of over-100 degree heat and showed off their skills in showmanship for market swine, market beef, market sheep, market goats and dairy cattle. The shows for cavies and breeding rabbits also took place. Way to persevere! Here are some shots from the day…

Tuesday June 11 Recap

Another busy and hot day on record at 2019 AgFest. Today…we had Dairy Cattle and Replacement Heifers arrive on set. We also had the Market competitions for swine, sheep, beef and goats, as well as out supreme champion drives for each of those species. Rather than the supreme drives happening in separate rings for all the species, we combined them all into one big celebration in the beef ring for all of the species. It was a great event, with great attendance! Here are some images from the day…

AgFest Exhibitors on KAT Country 103!

This morning at about 8:45 AM, five AgFest exhibitors talked with D.J. Walker and the morning crew on the FM 103 radio station! The members did a great job of telling the AgFest story and D.J. Walker was very generous in taking the time to teach them how the show is broadcasted. Great job representing AgFest…thanks to everyone for participating!
