Ceadurted by Mr. Robert F. Spenre, Farm Demonstrator and Special
For? eijrht yearn you enjoyed a
fair at Mt. Vernon which was con
ducted and supported by Rockcastle
county people, but exhibit made by
any county in the state. Including
anme different states. This meant
that few exhibits would be placed be
fore the general public In Rockcastle
county, especially along the line of
Ijst year your county a Kent and
board of directors discussed the ad
visibility of making the Mt. Vernon
fair a county fair, thereby making
. it 'possible for you as farmers and
your families to make entries in the
fair and not compete with other coun
ties, but only with the farmers and
their families of your county. Un
der this change the fair association
promoted some new ideas and built
a floral hall and make other changes
to suit the people of the county who
are in reality the builders and mak
ers of the fair.
Since this has become a county
fair and a fair in which we can show
our home, farm, and garden products,
also our livestock and poultry, with
out competing with people who have
been showing livestock for the pur
pose of just showing, we are inter
ested in showing our county products
from the standpoint of promoting
the business in the county, and in
the end brings more dollars and
cents and better citizenship.
As your County Agent I am very
anxious for all the farmers of Rock
castle county to take advantage of
county is doing by exhibiting the
products produced in the county at
.l. i
ine mir.
I want -to call the attention of all
club members to the fact that the
Mt Vernon fair invites you to their
fair and gives you free entrance,
any one or all days, by presenting
your Certificate of Membership or
button to the gate-keeper. The Mt.
Vernon fair also maintains a club
department. They finance this de
partment and insist that you as club
members show your products in the
club department. I insist that each
club member take the advantage of
this opportunity and exhibit his
club products in competition with
each other, and also enter in compe
tition with the farmers. This is an
opportunity to show what you have
done and what you can do when you
have the chance. I am asking for
a chance for all the club members
of the county, and I am glad to see
that we are getting chance from
year to year.
Get ready with your products and
enter the club department and at
tend the fair with the sole purpose
of making it a better fair.
for the Junior Club members of the
county to have a wonderful week's
camp on Its grounds. The coopera
tion o fthe Fair Association is ap
preciated, and we wish to show our
cooperation and friendly relations In
making our county and fairs better
As County Agent I want to insist
that all club members and farmers
make all entries possible from the
standpoint of farming, livestock, ami
poultry raising, In the Brodhead F.
The fair dos not hsve a club depart
ment as they had last year, but they
ask all club members to make en
tries in the general department
Brodhead Fair has a good floral hall
and should be filled with the prod
ucts of the county. It should have
one of the biggest poultry exhibits
in the county, since it is located In
an ideal poultiy section. There are
no -poultry exhibit coops, therefore
the people who exhibit will have to
make their own coops. I hope that
the day will come, and that not later
than next year, that both the Mt.
Vernon and Brodhead. Fair Associa
tions will give to the people of Rock-'
castle county poultry exhibit coops
and pig and sheep pens at the fair
We, as the farmers and farmers'
families, desire, I am sure, very
much to make our fairs real fairs,
beneficial and inspirational, and now
we ask the privilege for the chance
to become a part of the fairs by en
tering our livestock, poultry, etc.
Let's tell our fair boards what we
want, and ask them if they will make
it possible for us by the time the
next year rolls around.
Let's enter every ring in the Broa
hpd and Mt. Vernon Fairs this year
that we possibly can. The money is
worth trying for and the competition
is interesting.
Your County Agent will meet you
at both of these fairs and be ready
to help in any way to make Rock
castle county a better county in
which to live.
