Your Ottawa Region, John Curry
Lots of livestock to see
RICHMOND – Do you want to see cows? Beef or dairy? How about horses? Or sheep?
Then the place that you want to be is the annual Richmond Fair which this year runs from Thursday evening, Sept. 16 through Sunday, Sept. 19 at the Richmond fairgrounds in Richmond.
Now, talk about seeing cows. Let’s count the ways.
There is an open 4H dairy showmanship show followed by a pre 4H dairy showmanship show on Friday, Sept. 17 starting at 11 a.m. Then there’s a Jersey and Holstein dairy show starting at 1 p.m. that same day.
But not enough. Then plan to attend on Saturday, Sept. 18 when there will be a junior Shorthorn and junior Hereford beef show, an open 4H beef showmanship show and a Shorthorn, Angus and Hereford beef show.
If you still haven’t seen everything you want to see, then return on Sunday, Sept. 19 for an open 4H beef showmanship show with a pre 4H beef showmanship show following and a Limousin and Simmental beef show.
But you are not a cow person – you like horses.
