The Goshen Fair featured young people taking care of animals

There's something special about the late summer and county fairs. The 103rd Goshen Agricultural Fair retains the spirit of fairs of long ago.  Chicken, sheep, goats and cows are judged by breed.  Young people from 4-H and the Future Farmers of America proudly display their animals which they have spent months feeding, preparing and grooming for the fair.  Many of the young people work with animals on family farms or at the Wamogo and Housatonic Valley High School’s FFA programs.

These young people are learning responsibility, discipline and showmanship.  We took photographs of a few of them with their animals.
