Democrat--Pathfinder. Although the Farm Bureau is The Farm Bureau reports the sponsoring agency, the that the 1979 Farm Show was Farm Show is really a corn- one of the biggest and best to munity project requiring the date. The many excellent 4-H volunteer effort and financial and FFA exhibits and the col- support of a great many people orful displays of arts, crafts, to make it successful. There is canned goods, baked goods, just no way of putting a price needle work and produce from tag on all the time that the the farms and gardens of our many people donate each year. Gilmer County people was a real treat to the many visitors to the fair. A new feature this year was the Sheep Show, which was a very popular event. Credit for the Sheep Show belongs to t Mr. and Mrs. Clark Jamison. They took the initiative in plan- ning, organizing and staging this project involving 36 en- tries. Perhaps the most popular entry was completely unplanned, unrehearsed and unexpected when Mary Jo Ellyson and her lamb staged a wrestling match that had the spectators roaring with laughter. Another popular en- try was the husband and wife teams of Mr. and Mrs. Leon Ellyson and Mr. and Mrs. Clark Jamlson. Judge for the event was John Clare, WVU Exten- sion Agent from Braxton Coun- ty. Clare remarked several times during the judging that the quality and condition of the animals were of such superior conditions that he found it difficult to select win- ners from each class. Nelson Garrett and O.R. Spurgeon scheduled the feeder calf show, which has increasing entries year tar year. The judge was Bill Hall of the West Virginia Department of Agriculture. He gave the members entering the various contests several pointers, especially on showmanship. Coverage and photos of this event will be seen in Part II next week. When members of the Farm Bureau were building the show ring and box stalls about three years ago, Glendell Butcher remarked that this was about the best thing that had been done for FFA and 4-H in a long time. He said that there was just one thing wrong with the project--it just was not big enough. Well, Glendell was certainly right and Farm Bureau leaders are already discussing plans to add more box stalls for the 1980 show. There was just not enough room for all the people, calves and. sheep to maneuver without bumping into one another. In addition to the 36 sheep entries, there were over 40 head of calves of all types--steers, heifers, dairy and various beef breeds.
