On the fair’s first day, the 4-H and FFA members were hard at work in the livestock barns. Butte Valley FFA Adviser Jim Shanks says major ribbons were handed out to some of the Butte Valley students.

On Sunday afternoon, fair attendees are invited to the livestock auction which includes the 4-H and FFA exhibits and projects. Cofer’s grand champion steer will be on the auction block. The Butte Valley junior says there’s a lot of preparation for a blue ribbon steer.

More of the exhibits and projects will be judged throughout the weekend.
