Animals rule the roost at the Wisconsin State Fair

NOW: Animals rule the roost at the Wisconsin State Fair

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- 1,500 sheep, swine, and chickens are just as much part of the Wisconsin State Fair as the rides and food are. CBS58 spent a little time in the Ag Village during the morning news today to see how the owners prepare the animals for the day.

There’s feeding and bathing.  And blow drying. Milking too. It can get to be a little high maintenance.  It really becomes a 24/7 operation. New this year is the "Neyborhood Corral" where you kind find a display of horses.

As far as the daily rundown goes, this is a big day for Fair foodies.  It’s Crazy Grazing.  You can many foods for half off.  Also the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Meat Products Auction happens at 5:30 at the Case IH Coliseum. And finally one of the big musical acts is Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone.  They perform at 8 o clock at the Associated Bank Amphitheater.
