Wheat entry deadline aproaching for Fair


The Ellis County Fair is coming up fast, and farmers are being asked to enter wheat into the Market Wheat Show.

To submit an entry, fill up a bag of wheat while unloading at the elevator or at grain bins and return a crop data card after harvest to either the elevator or Ellis County Extension office. Entries are due to the elevator or Extension office by July 3.

Cash and ribbons will be awarded to first-, second- and third-place winners. Bags and cards are available at all elevators. Wheat will be picked up and entered into the 2014 Open Class Market Wheat Show at the Ellis County Fair.

Entries and ribbons can be picked up at the conclusion of the fair between 9 and 11 a.m. July 19 at the Schenk Building or later at the Extension office, 601 Main.
