Today’s Topic: Mountain State Fair canceled, but junior livestock shows will go on.

Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with Southern Farm Network’s Mike Davis to discuss “Today’s Topic.”

We had gotten to a critical time in the planning and preparation for the Mountain State Fair where we would have had to start signing contracts and obligating money for fair expenses. With the state remaining in Phase 2 of re-opening, the right decision was to cancel the 2020 Mountain State Fair. But we will be looking for other activities to bring to the fairgrounds when the fair would have been operating and we will host junior livestock shows.
