While the Fair is still months away, Nevada County’s youth in agriculture work tirelessly all year in order to show animals at the Fair. Here’s to all the hard-working students out there already busy preparing for the 2018 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!
Wow! Together, this year’s Junior Livestock Auction and Ag Mechanics Auction grossed more than $586,000 (which includes $67,000 in bumps) for our local youth! Thank you to all the buyers and businesses for supporting Nevada County’s youth in agriculture and our next generation!
Counting the days until opening day. We know our livestock community is busy, busy, busy getting ready for this year’s Fair. We can’t wait to see the barns full of animals and showcase the hard work of our youth in agriculture!
