The Brown County Youth Fair continued Tuesday with sheep, goats and pigs on display at the ag barn.
The day began with breeding sheep. Madden Wise with the Brownwood 4-H took grand champion honors for his junior medium wool ewe, while Tynlea Wilson, Brownwood FFA, won reserve champion for the same breed.
Wilson went on to capture grand champion in the subsequent hair sheep division, edging out the Early FFA’s Hutsyn Hohertz who won reserve champion.
Turning to goats, Gavin Miller of the Brownwood 4-H earned top honors for his senior doe, the only one in the competition. Early FFA’s Hannah Hull, showing a kid doe, took reserve champion.
Pee wee competitor Jace Duncan won a crowded field of pigs to become grand champion with his duroc purebreed summer gilt. Hunter Mares of the Brownwood FFA, showing a duroc purebreed senior fall gilt, won reserve champion.
Hayden Schroeder (sheep, junior and goats), Tara Glasscock (sheep, senior) and Katelyn Cozart (pigs) took the showmanship awards during the session.
Between the goat and pig competitions, the Youth Fair hosted its first event for special-needs children. Sponsored by the Texas Farm Bureau, more than 25 kids walked the barn and showed off their sheep for the judge. They were all presented a ribbon, and a hearty round of applause, for their participation.
