While the Ferris wheels and fair food stands were assembled, local youth were making their own preparations for the Dixon May Fair Wednesday afternoon.
Squawks, bleats, bellows and oinks were heard throughout the livestock area of the fairgrounds from the fowl, goats, sheep, steer and pigs as students and their parents prepped them for showing over the next few days and Saturday’s auction.
Standing beside his four sheep, Tyler Pettey, 10, of the Maine Prairie 4-H Club explained that he has been walking the sheep and practicing showing them by guiding them on a halter.
