GREENFIELD — There is no way to take in all that is the Indiana State Fair. There are endless rides, countless events and miles of paths to walk, but the highlights are always the same. You haven’t really been to the fair until you’ve strolled through the livestock barn, eaten a deep-fried something, seen the state’s largest pig and watched a cow give birth.
In the midst of celebrating all things farming, it can be easy to forget that hundreds of 4-H’ers are still in competition mode. On Monday, several Hancock County students were hard at work showing their animal projects, including swine, steers and cats.
Though it’s not one of the events that typically comes to mind as a fair staple, the cat show has been a favorite of Hancock County 4-H’ers for the last 17 years.
