The Christian County Fair is on its way with events spanning from July 26th through the 30th. While the tractor pull, demolition derby, and pageants are a great time, one portion that is a huge part of any fair, especially the Christian County Fair, is the Livestock and Agriculture shows. Lee Mateer, Livestock Superintendent of the Christian County Fair, said the week is jam packed with livestock and agriculture events and shows.

Mateer said that the 4H part of the fair is really important because kids are able to show off what they love to do and it helps kids learn how to raise livestock and vegetation to get the new generation of farmers prepared for a career that might be ahead of them.
