Farm fresh: Youngsters celebrate victories at Appalachian Fair Junior Beef Show

Jonathan Roberts, Johnson City Press • Aug 20, 2019 at 11:10 AM

Colt Thomas was well-prepared for Monday’s Beef Showmanship competition at the Appalachian Fair — something he proved when he won Showmanship in his class.

The thing is, Thomas is just 10 years old.

“I’m feeling good,” Thomas said with a smile. “There’s a lot of good showmen out there, and, well, it was hard (to win).”

Thomas had little time to soak in his victory though, and he and his cow, named Silk, were busy preparing for another competition, this time, however, it would be less about how well Thomas is able to show off his cow, and more about the cow herself.
