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:
- Straightness of tail with no bumps
- No sores or blisters
- No white spots under arms
- Proper ear tattoo
- Straight topline and no dip in shoulders
- Good color
- Good teeth
What are they judging?
