It was a very productive year at the Pickaway County Fair for many of the Jr. Fair livestock exhibitors. The Pickaway County Farm Bureau and the Pickaway County Buyers Club once again stepped up their support for the county youth. The Pickaway County Farm Bureau purchased the Grand Champion Dairy Beef Feeder, exhibited by Ellie Kidd.
The Pickaway County Buyers Club made bids on 95% of the animals that went through the ring, purchasing a total of 84 animals and adding on to the purchases of 20 other projects. Congratulations to all of the 4-H and FFA members who exhibited at the Pickaway County Fair.
