Max Armstrong shares a look at one feature of county and state fairs lost in 2020 – consumer education

Max Armstrong looks back on the missed county and state fairs of 2020. While the lost revenue for local cities and towns is a cost. But there's also the challenge of lost opportunity for the farm families involved in livestock events at those fairs. And those livestock shows at fairs are about more than the animals, it's a chance to educate the consumer.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
