We’re excited for the 3rd Annual Farm Day, happening on Thursday at the Fairgrounds! We’ll have almost 700 kids from area schools on the grounds to learn about agriculture in Nevada County, meet lots of animals, and, of course, meet some draft horses. Thank you to the Nevada County Resource Conservation District, the Nevada County Farm Bureau, and Bear River & Nevada Union FFA students for making this day possible!

Sisters Win Large Animal Master Showmanship at Nevada County Fair

So many fun stories from the 2017 Fair! In the livestock area, sisters Maddie and Rylee Prechter both won Large Animal Master Showmanship. Maddie, 17, who attends Bear River High School and is part of the FFA program, won the FFA Large Animal Master Showmanship. Maddie also had the Reserve Champion for her ewe and her Angus heifer. Rylee, 14, who graduated from Magnolia and is now attending Bear River, won the 4-H Large Animal Master Showmanship. She also had the Supreme Champion steer. Both girls have been competing at the Nevada County Fair since they were five years old; and, according to their Mom, Michelle, “they are an amazing team, work great together and always help each other reach their goals.” Congratulations, Maddie and Rylee!
