With close to 600 entries in the N.C. State Fair exhibited from Rowan County, we are still trying to get all of the results together. We had multiple Grand Champions to come back to Rowan County. As promised, here are some more results of Rowan County youth and livestock producers’ successful week at the N.C State Fair.

Several Rowan County youth in the dairy goat show competed in showmanship with very successful placings. Grayce Moore won first place in her showmanship class. Madison Noble won first place in intermediate showmanship and Jackson Noble won first place in senior showmanship.

Competing in the youth show, J&M Hideaway Desert Mirage won Junior Champion and J&M Hideaway WWS Wildwest Riot won Reserve Junior Champion.
