News 8 Eye Piece: Dairy Show

WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) - We're in the middle of fair season with the La Crosse County Interstate Fair wrapping up last weekend and the Monroe County and Trempealeau County Fairs running this weekend.

In this week's Eye Piece, Chief Photographer Chuck Oedsma shows us what it's like to show calves at the fair.

"It's fun to see how excited they are and how excited they are to come in with their calf," said La Crosse County Interstate Fair Judge Londa Johnson.  "And also how proud they are. You know, it's something they've worked at all summer long and they've put a lot of time and energy and effort into. So this is their time to showcase kind of all that work."
