Baker said they’re nearing the end of the week-long event.  “We have several exhibits and events.  We will have our dairy show at 11 a.m. on Thursday.  We will have our swine show on Friday at 4 p.m.  Our beef show is on Saturday morning and we will wrap up with our premium sale on Saturday at 7 p.m.”

The horse show scheduled for Wednesday has been moved from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. because of the expected high temperatures.  KMZU will have a live broadcast from the Linn County Fair’s Tractor Rodeo from 2-4 p.m.
