4-Hers show their stuff
The Emmet County Agricultural Fair brings together family, friends and animals.
4-Hers all over Emmet County work hard to show their animals and other talents to get that prestigious blue ribbon.
Kids of all ages are showing poultry, rabbits, swine, cattle and other projects such as photography, welding and clothing.
Brianna Enerson, 13, of the High Flyers is showing four chickens this year. Her favorite part of the fair is the horse show because she gets to ride a horse. She enjoys grooming her horse and taking care of it.
Nate Kropf, 16, of the Highlanders is showing pigs, cattle, a welding project and shooting sports. He is going to the state fair for welding and shooting sports. Nate’s favorite thing about the fair is showing cattle because there are a lot of kids in the cattle barn and he thinks cattle are “easy to show.”
