The 2018 Madison County Fair Dairy Cattle Show was Friday, July 13, the second day of the fair in Brookfield.
Nearly 50 head were presented before judge Ken McEvoy of Marathon with all breeds represented except for Brown Swiss. The quality of animals was exceptional.
Cattle superintendent Dewitt Head has been able to acquire substantial donations from area businesses to provide cash prizes far beyond the fair premiums the state budget allows. Every youth exhibitor in the showmanship classes receive $20.
