The 2013 Land O Lakes Youth Fair weigh-in was held Monday, Feb. 18, at the sale barn south of El Dorado Springs. Area youth and their families hauled in 20 steers and four heifers so Dr. Brian Collins, DVM, and the volunteer support staff could tattoo, nose print and weigh the animals to enter them in the rate of gain contest for the Youth Fair scheduled for July 9-13. Three more contestants sent the required photos to Jerry Brackenridge to enter their heifers in the Youth Fair, but not the rate of gain contest. That brings the total entries to 20 steers and seven heifers, down from the 26 steers and 10 heifers entered in the 2012 Youth Fair.
