On Monday, April 1 the round barn at the Fayette County Fairgrounds saw a new addition, as 79 new poultry cages were installed. Chris Palmersheim, Strawberry Point, built the cages and was assisted by several 4-H & FFA members and their families in getting the cages installed.
Donations from local individuals, businesses, 4-H clubs and monies received from a Pioneer Grant helped cover a good portion of the expense to upgrade these cages. A sign of all donors, who helped make this project a reality, will be seen hanging in the rabbit and poultry barn at the Fayette County Fairgrounds during fair week, July 23-27. A big thank you goes out to everyone who contributed and helped install the cages on this brisk April morning.
