Exhibitors tested their knowledge and control of their cows Thursday in the beef showmanship judging event at the Lorain County Fair. The 4-H’ers walked their cows around the ring and had them stand for inspection. The judge told exhibitors that her winner of each class is someone who keeps their eyes constantly on her, stands their steer perfectly with minimum touching, keeps the steer’s head up, and moves smoothly through the ring.
