Caldwell--The Canyon County Fair is in full swing at the Fairgrounds in Caldwell. One of the highlights of the fair are the 4-H shows in the livestock barns.

Jessica Jackson of Middleton showed her prized tom turkey, Joe on Friday in the Poultry show. Joe and Jessica brought home the blue ribbon!

The purpose of showing is to teach kids about the livestock industry.
The show provides youths with experience that teaches skills and instills confidence while encouraging responsibility. The sale of livestock and poultry generates funds as a reward for training, grooming and showing the animals.
