A better way to solve the problem of overcrowding (of livestock at the Stanislaus County Fair) would be to have the judging before the fair starts if necessary. Then allow each 4-H and FFA club to exhibit a predetermined number of animals including their sale animals.
Keep the county fair a real fair.
In my younger life time I have shown dairy cattle at all the county fairs in Central Valley — none compared to Stanislaus County Fair.
This fair has lived up to the true meaning of local fair — emphasizing agriculture and the home arts.
