Cokeville participated in the Lincoln County Fair this week. The week began on Monday with 4-H general judging, horse shows and Community Booth judging. Cokeville was represented in all three. Monday night Katelyn Petersen represented Cokeville in the Vocalist Contest and although she didn’t come away with the $10,000, we were so proud of her. She did an amazing job! Tuesday brought more horse shows and community judging. Wednesday the Jerry Dayton family represented Cokeville in the hog show and did very well with Madilyn winning showmanship. Thursday was the steer show where more Cokeville 4-H members put their hard work to the test and came away feeling good about their performance.
Friday was the lamb show.The Zane Groll family came away with the Grand and Reserve Champion lambs with Emmitt taking Grand for his first year in 4-H and his sister, Bryli taking Reserve. The kids all showed well and had many individual honors as well. Saturday was the livestock sale. With social distancing, numbers were down in the crowd but the buyers came through for the Cokeville kids.
