When it comes to county fairs, Prowers County always struts some serious stuff. Animals show in the Pavillion, dressed in their summer finest, with glossy shining coats and happy personalities. One little girl was heard describing show turkeys as “handsome” and a young steer was declared “spectacular”, but the best comes from the ooing and ahing of little children allowed to pet goats, sheep, and bunnies in their cages.
