Goats judged at the Tippecanoe Co. Fair

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Over at the Tippecanoe County fair, judges are awarding ribbons for best in class and grand champion.

Monday morning judges looked over 229 goats from 73 different classes at the Coliseum in the Tippecanoe County fairgrounds.

Officials said the number of contestants has grown over the past few years.

For Kelsey Cochran, this was her first time being a showman for the goat judging. She and her goat won her class and is a finalist for grand champion.

“I was nervous because this was my first year, but once I got out there it was just like being out on the farm and doing it everyday. It really helped that she sets up perfectly every single time and doesn’t move, so she made it a lot easier for me,” said Cochran.

Awards were also given out in the sheep competition. In addition, judges named a grand champion for lamb and ewe.
