The competition was on as Marion County kids competed in the annual goat show at the Marion County Fair.

Around 24 kids showcased their goats while hundreds of audience members watched. 4H and FFA members were in attendance. One student said for her, the goat show is all about promoting the positive side of agriculture. 

"There's so many negative things right now in the world about agriculture and how people are treating their animals," said competitor, Shannon DeHaan. "We really want to show and demonstrate what we really want to promote here. We want to show the positive side of agriculture where we are very loving and caring to our animals."
