Each year many Tyler County young people devote a lot of time raising animals to show at the Tyler County Fair and once again a lot of folks went out to support the Tyler County young people at this year's event. When the bidding and "Behind the Barn" buying ended Saturday night, sales for the 2012 Fair totaled $171,727 which is an incredible effort by the buyers in this challenging economic time.
The weather was perfect this year, generally cool and dry, which brought a lot of folks out for both the Carnival and the other Fair activities.
If you've not had a child who participated in the Livestock portion of the Tyler County Fair, you may not know how expensive it is to raise these animals. Because of this expense it would not be possible for many young people to participate in the Fair if not for the folks who buy their animals at the auction each year. The Booster salutes these Buyers and the contribution they make to the young people of Tyler County.
