Victoria Magoon almost repeated her championship performance at the Clark County Fair last week when she took the Reserve Grand Champion Beef award. The 16-year old student at Virgin Valley High School won second place with her 1245 pound steer.

Last year Magoon, a Bunkerville resident, won the highest award in the beef category for her Grand Champion steer.

The Virgin Valley Future Farmers of America and the Virgin Valley 4-H club members had numerous entries in this year's Fair competition, spending the week at the

fairgrounds in Logandale tending to their animals.

Even though their mother had an emergency health situation, Haven and Trey Houston of the local clubs, "were cleaning up and taking care of their animals in spite of their personal situation," remarked Elise McAllister. "They were real troopers all week long."

From cattle to pigs to goats and lambs, the kids learn valuable lessons and responsibility by taking care of their animals all year long.

The kids also earn money for college or personal expenses when their show animals are auctioned off.
