4-H members' hard work shows
At last year's Washington County Fair, Morgan Monio, a member of the Riverside Routers 4-H Club, didn't do well in the show ring with the cow she raised.
This year was a different story. Monio's Charolais cow took grand and reserve championships and she's earned a trip to the Minnesota State Fair representing Washington County.
Judges said her cow had good characteristics for the breed including a "big butt" and broad shoulders. They also said the animal was well fed.
