Delaware State Fair Showcases Young Farmers

Posted: Updated:

HARRINGTON, Del.- The Delaware State Fair features a number of exhibits on agriculture and livestock shows, many of which have deep involvement from children and teenagers.

Taylor Brittingham of Smyrna has been showing farm animals in competition since childhood. She said the process of keeping cattle ready for competition is a time-consuming process, one that can drain up to 3 hours a day.

"Every day we have to rinse them, and blow them out. We monitor their feed everything and we have to weigh them on a weekly basis," she said.

Many students from local schools participate in programs like Delaware 4-H and Future Farmers of America.

Caitlin Walton, a science teacher at Milford High School who helps with the school's FFA chapter, said it's rewarding to help agriscience-minded students.

"It's great to see them go from something like, 'Oh I kind of like it' to something like 'I'm passionate about it. I want to get more involved...It's awesome," she said. "I love it."
