I just saw a deal that the Kansas State Fair was gonna try and make it a go.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

Nebraska State Fair is a go.  I hope so, but I have to wonder.  Grand Island NE has the strongest concentration of Covid-19 positive tests in the nation.

I have heard 2 theories. One.....covid 19 killed the club calf industry. Two....since people are social distancing families have a lot of time on their hands to work with calves.

It has been more of a delight than I can tell you to have the grand kids home the past few months.  They absolutely love to be around the cattle, they remind me of myself when I was a kid.  They can tell you anything you want to know and are taking a real interest in planning this spring's matings.  Even on my cows!  We had a handful of early calves and I can tell you those kids already have them all but ready for the fair.  A friend of mine stopped by last weekend to look at the calves and I just sent the kids out with him and stayed out of the way.  The only problem is the two best heifer calves in the pen were theirs and they won't sell them!  They've always shown great interest and helped immensely with everything around the farm, but I will tell you this spring has been an absolute joy.  For all of us.  Now, we heard yesterday that the high school baseball season in Iowa will most likely go on.  They love baseball, as do I.  I guess I'll have to go back to sharing them, but that's okay.  As far as the club calf industry or showing cattle in general, this may be a brief setback.  But the cattle business gets in your blood.  Whether you show them, raise them, feed them out, it doesn't matter.  If there's a way to keep a cow on your place, you'll do it.

Minnesota state fair was canceled. 
Glad to see Ohio form a committee to put on a jr show sometime this summer,  hopefully.

I was hoping that everybody just opened up.......and then by the time the National Western comes around covid 19 would would have all ready swept through everybody and caused herd immunity. I suppose though that the fall of 2020 a second wave will be coming through.
