beating the heat
Sunday morning is stinking hot, and the weatherman has predicted temperatures of up to 100 degrees. With the other animals released the prize winners get a few extra fans to help them beat the heat. Banks of fans are strapped together and blow into the barn.
It's a long haul until the 1:00 auction time, and chances are the heat will keep the bidding crowd down, which is not good for the kids. The cattle will probably be auctioned off and lower prices this year.
