Cooler Weather Helping Cattle at Lancaster County Fair

By  | 

4-H member Rachel Johnson says with temperatures in the mid 80's she can vacuum hair off her cows. That's much different than what she's used to.

Typically it's so hot she has to rinse her cows off multiple times each day. Now sitting in their pens, these cows can stay cool but she doesn't have to do as much work.

"Every single stall has fans blowing on the cattle. They are special fans that you order from places like Sullivan where they blow a tremendous amount of air," said Johnson.

Cows were beginning to be shown off in front of judges on Thursday. Some cattle owners say their cows will be in these pens until the middle of next week.
