  • Cows, combs, fast food at the Greene County fair

    Yellow Springs resident Austin Pence did some last minute primping and preening of the heifer that he and friend Jordin Snider showed in the Greene County Fair last week. Pence has been showing cattle for 13 years, and said that heifers should be big-boned and have a wide chest. Not too spread out, but not too close together. “You want the heifers to look effeminate,” he said, “like they can carry a baby.” (Photo by Dylan Taylor-Lehman)

    Yellow Springs native Austin Pence has been showing cattle at the Greene County Fair for 13 years, and the pre-show primping is part of the daily routine.
