Fair attendees have been disappointed this year to find that farmers and livestock aren’t at the Fair like they normally are.
Just like attendance is down for the Fair as fears of COVID and the Delta variant swirl, the same goes for farmers and their animals.
Another reason is that planning for these events takes up to nine months and with only eight weeks this year, it just wasn’t plausible for everyone.
Other farmers still came this year because the tradition is so important to them.
