Western Montana Fair 4-H animal presentations

Aug 19, 2013

The Western Montana Fair recently descended upon Missoula’s Fairgrounds for the 134th time. 

Along with the food, rides and games there were animals; lots of ‘em.  The Glacier Ice Rink and adjoining structures provided a temporary home for about 500 critters of all sizes.

Many were reared by families involved in Montana’s largest out-of-school youth development program, 4-H.  Dressed in sharp black pants and crisp white shirts, 4-H’ers presented their animals as well as in-depth knowledge on their characteristics.  Reporter Justin Steck visited with participants of the event.
