Below, Austin Pence nuzzled his heifer Mabel on his family’s 130-acre farm on Xenia Avenue just south of the Village water towers. The fair starts Sunday, Aug. 1. (photos by Lauren Heaton)

    At his family’s farm last week across from Dollar General, 16-year-old Austin Pence was using the cool of the dusk to wash and blow dry two of his favorite animals. Mabel, a year-old heifer, and Bart, a 17-month-old steer, hung by the white barn calm and collected as their black coats began to take on a fluffiness.
