Winters FFA sweeps at Yolo County Fair

It was an exciting time in the auction arena yesterday at the Yolo County Fair.  The Winters FFA was well represented.  Many of the Grand Champion or Reserve Champion animals belonged to Winters FFA members and of course, my nephew, Tyler was there with his Grand Champion turkey.  Prices were sure down this year, I think the Grand Champion steer only got $2.75 a pound.   Too bad for the kids who put so much time and effort into their projects but a really lesson that there is no guarantee of any profit when it comes to making a living in agriculture, or any small business for that matter.  Kudos to all the kids and their families for being there and supporting them.   There is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make this a successful event.
