4-H members keep their animals cool at the fair

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Some llama owners are skipping the Dane County Fair this week, but other exhibitors say misting machines and fans are keeping their animals cool.

With temperatures in the 90s and the heat index even higher, most 4-H members and other livestock owners aren't deterred by the heat.

Seventeen-year-old Kate Griswold, from the Cross Plains 4-H club, says the heat wave this year presents an extra challenge, but she knows how to handle her pigs.  They get a cool bath every two or three hours.

The fair runs through Saturday.

Organizers expect up to 70,000 people to attend the fair this week.
