Delaware County Fair – Wednesday Recap, Thursday Preview

The Delaware County Fair honored a special man at the 4-H/FFA Dairy Show on Wednesday.

David Kunde passed away earlier this year, but he left a huge impact on the dairy industry and the fair itself, with his decades of service to the dairy program, the 4-H Food Stand and the 4-H program, specifically the Milo Livestock 4-H Club.

ISU Extension & Outreach Delaware County presented a special award to honor Kunde’s legacy, with his family, his 4-H club and dairy kids accepting on his behalf. David’s daughter, Jennifer Zumbach, says it means a lot for them to think of her dad.

Many of the 4-Hers who learned so much about the dairy industry from David Kunde took their turns showing their cows and heifers in the ring on Wednesday. Senior Lane Domeyer of Delhi was showing for his final time, ending his 4-H career on a high note winning Champion Senior Showman and Outstanding Dairy Exhibitor. He says it’s been a great journey.

The younger kids had a chance to get in the show ring too during the Dairy Kiddie Show. Seven-year-old Isaac Sievert of Anamosa was excited to walk away with a trophy as one of the winners.

And Wednesday night’s Christian concert and Amateur Tough Truck Races were held as scheduled – nothing like last year’s emergency situation when a tornado touchdown in Manchester required everyone at the fairgrounds to evacuate and seek shelter. And it looks like the picture-perfect fair weather will continue tonight as hundreds will fill the track and grandstands for the country night concert with Jake Owen. Fair Manager Jeannie Domeyer:

The pit area in front of the stage is sold out, but tickets are still available for the track, which is standing room only. For more information, call or stop by the fair office or go online to delawarecofair.com.
