Throughout the year, every 4-Her works very hard on their project. The culmination of all of the hard work takes place at the Madison County 4-H Fair. We spend an incredible amount of time learning about the beef industry, taming and training animals (which typically weigh over 1,000 pounds) and then groom our animals. Much the same as when someone takes their dog to be groomed, the cattle need to look just right when they enter the ring.
Sometimes, the hard work and learning are not very well respected. I can understand how someone who does not know what 4-Hers go through to get their animals looking their best for the judge would not expect to walk into a cattle barn during show grooming and feel like they walked into a beauty parlor. But that is just what it is, a beauty parlor. This same beauty parlor can be experienced during the dog, cat, horse, and to a lesser extent the pig shows - to name only a few.
Our show at Madison County is really tame compared to larger shows.
Since you are new to livestock shows, welcome to our world.
