We went on one of the days us old folk got in free. First we grabbed some food and a drink from the root beer truck.
A stroll through some of the exhibits found the winning pumpkins and some of the kids craft work with farm produce.
We skipped the concerts this year and just watched some of the kids having fun.
At the birthing center, Zeus was born about 4 hours earlier and another cow was in labor. One of the owners was explaining the process and answering questions. A Holstein calf weighs between 80 and 100 pounds at birth, learns to stand and start nursing within 30 minutes after birth. She asked the crowd to suggest names and then held a voice vote. The crowd was divided on "Sonny" and "James" so this one became Sonny James. The piglets in my header were about 12 hours old when I took the picture.
New models of farm machinery are on display and they are ready to take your order for a new tractor, combine, or other equipment.
