  1. Elizabeth Toth says:

    Thought you would like to know that the Portage County Randolph Fair Junior Fair Grand Champion Carcass Steer raised by Joe Toth and the PCRFJF Grand Champion Market Steer raised and exhibited by Lance Utt were raised within a mile of each other in Shalersville Township north of Ravenna and south of Mantua. Most of the exhibitors are from the southern part of the county. Could it be something in the water?

  2. Hmmm. You might be on to something there! Congratulations on a great fair!
