Will Be at County Fair One of the nation'* mo* prominent livestock Judges, Dr. Harlan Richie, will lead off (tie livestock judging next Tuesday at the Knox County Fair. Dr. Richie, a Michigan State University professor, has judged such shows as the Austin Barrow Show, Austin, Mbm.; the International live* stock Show at Chicago, and the Kansas City Royal Live* stock Siow. Knox County Fair Livestock show director Dean Simkins today said he was "surprised and.delighted," when Richie accepted his invitation to be a livestock judge here. "He is one of the most prominent judges in the country,'* Simkins said. "I really never dreamed that a judge of his caliber would come down to the county fair level," Simkins added. Richie has judged at numerous other national shows and state fairs. Dr. Richie will start the judging Tuesday at 1 p.m. when he evaluates the bar* rows on the hoof — (he car* cass barrow class. Champion of that class will be purchased by the Knox County Pork Products for $1 a pound live weight, the reserve champion will be sold to the Fanners National Rank of KnoxvMe for 50 cents per pound live weight. PRIZES and trophies total-, ing $225 will be awarded to winners of the five classes in tile barrow show. Winning barrows will be taken to Monmouth's Wilson Meat Packing plant Wednesday and slaughtered. The dressed carcasses will be judged then by Dr! Glenn Schmidt, Animal Meat Scientist from the University of Illinois. Judging "on the rail," according to Simkins, 1155 Because Red Wing Work Shoes come in so many styles and sizes—6 to 16, double A to fourE**»they're a perfect fit for most any pair of hard-working farm feet.

MAIN — Two Doors West of Walgreens "Us the proof of the whole ihifig." "They weight the hams and loins . . . and measure the amount of back fat," Simkins explained. "That, of course is what's important to the housewife," he added. Tuesday's evaluation of the barrows on the hoof is a potentially embarrassing role for livestock judges, Simkins went on. "Re (the judge) has to look right through (hat brTrow." WITH the same barrows iudged on the rail two days later, the first judge has to be good. "And Dr. Richie is one of the best," Simkins concluded. RICHIE WILL also judge the "Open to the World" Steer Show Wednesday afternoon. Simkins said show sponsors expect about 60 entries from ? wider area than in past years. Grand Champion prize is $200 and reserve grand champion will receive $100, the director said. There are five places each in the rest of the classes in the Wednesday steer show, totalling $200 in prizes per class. Although the deadline for show entries has passed, entries will probably be accepted until Tuesday, Simkins said. "We expect the Wednesday Steer Show to be one of the best in the Midwest," Simkins added. The Junior shows begin Thursday morning and sheep, cattle and beef will be judged during the day. The junior shows are open to young people between 9 and 19 years old. Judges in the junior divisions will be Robert Beatty, swine; Roger Steiger, cattle; and Don Ooordess, sheep.
