Beef on parade

Beef might be for dinner in most households, but at the Shawano County Fair, the beef was mighty feisty Thursday as the beef judging kicked off at the Coliseum.

For some exhibitors, bringing an animal into the spotlight for all to see and comment about was a new experience. For others, the experience was a piece of cake.

Amber Cina of the Bonduel 4-H had an interesting time keeping her dairy steer under control. She noted afterward that being around strange animals and new people likely made him feisty.

Intoxicating contest

It's obvious the Shawano County brewing community has been improving its craft, declared Michael Conard, food and nutrition judge at the Shawano County Fair's annual Beer and Wine Judging contest.

"My favorite part of judging home brew competitions like this is being able to give feedback to the contestants," Conard said. "Any kind of judging is about educating the producer to make their product better."

This year's competition, hosted Thursday in the Crawford Center in Shawano, had 14 beer and 52 wine entries.

Longhairs, shorthairs, kittens, 3-year-old cats, even a cat that is 14. All different colors and breeds were represented Wednesday at the 4-H Cat Show at the Shawano County Fair.

Donald Finger, who judges the local show every other year, told those in attendance that the Wisconsin 4-H programs did not start the cat show until the late 1970s. There are some misconceptions about colors that he, as an expert purebred cat owner, explained to the crowd during the show.
