Long hours of preparation pay off for area youth in livestock shows

DSCF0551

Showing animals is an integral part of the Cedar County Fair.

From dogs to chickens to goats and cattle, the buildings on the Cedar County Fairgrounds are filled with animals, each July and the kids showing them.

While much of the action takes place in the actual show ring, the preparation starts months before the performance.
