For most, a county fair means animals raised by young people being judged and winning colorful ribbons before being sold at auction. This is a learning experience for those taking part, as well as a way to increase college tuition bank accounts. In the Indoor Arena, where the judging of sheep, hogs and cattle will take place later in the week, members of a number of FFA and 4-H clubs took part Wednesday afternoon in a judging contest. Crook County FFA and 4-H leader, Jeff Papke, explained that teams from Redmond, Culver and Crook County were judging the market hogs as part of the contest. "They are doing what the judges will be doing to their animals in a day or so," Papke said.
