The Dane and Columbia County Youth expo took place on Saturday July 18th, 2020 at the Iowa County Fairgrounds and it was a success. Throughout the day swine, lambs and beef were shown and exhibitors were seen with huge grins on their face.
Ron Russell, one of the organizers of the event said that the show met all of their expectations even with the storm that passed through on Saturday morning. Exhibitors showed out of their trailers and the rain kept the heat away resulting in happy and comfortable livestock.
The total cost of the show was around $3,000 which was covered in donations and support from the community. Over $34,000 was raised for this show and it is in the ‘Purple Ribbon Fund’ that will be equally distributed among the exhibitors after all of the costs of the show are covered.
