One of Lafayette County’s Youth was interviewed by Alice in Dairyland at the Wisconsin State Fair!
On Day 7 we “moo-vd” around the fairgrounds at the Wisconsin State Fair!
Lea is known as a “show diva.” She’s a Hereford senior yearling. Lea is very loving towards her owners but isn’t too fond of little kids. Her favorite thing in the world is having her neck scratched. Lea occasionally throws a fit when she has to wait for her food. Once in the show ring, she loves being in the spotlight.
Her owner, Brett Jones, commented, “As exhibitors, it’s our goal to show fairgoers that we take better care of our animals than ourselves. The Wisconsin State Fair is a great opportunity to compete with the best of the best.”
