2015 Premiere Exhibitor Results – WI State Fair




(West Allis, WI): There are so many reasons to attend Wisconsin State Fair – for some it’s the rides and others it’s the food. But for more than 300 4-H and FFA members, one of their favorite reasons to attend is to compete in the Premier Exhibitor competitions.

The Premier Exhibitor competitions are educational contests which test junior exhibitors’ project knowledge in a variety of events. The species event included: judging competitions, skillathons, knowledge quizzes, showmanship, and an industry interview. Premier Exhibitor contest opportunities were offered for the following species: beef cattle, dairy cattle, goats, sheep, swine and rabbits. Awards were given to the top ten exhibitors in each species contest and also to the top exhibitor in each event. Please join us as we congratulate all participants and winners who have demonstrated exceptional project and industry awareness. The Wisconsin State Fair would also like to thank the generous award sponsors for these events.  Please note that results below are for the Beef, Swine, Sheep and Goat Divisions.
