For some, the Minnesota State Fair is all about competition. Every weekday during the fair, All Things Considered is asking: "What are they judging?"
Read or listen to the judge describing what they look for in a winner, and then try and guess what it is. Click on the picture to the right to reveal what they're judging.
What today's judge is looking for:
- No dirt, twine or hay
- Proper presentation
- Proper color
- Good luster and brightness
- Firm and strong
- Good fibers
- Not too much grease or oil
