Locals place at MN State Fair

From left, Josie Clemens, 7, and her sister Alyssa, 9, showed hogs at the Aug. 29 Minnesota State Fair swine show. Alyssa’s purebred Hampshire took second place, and Alyssa also made the final drive in showmanship. Josie took fifth place with her Yorkshire. The sisters have been showing at the Washington County Fair for five years and at the state fair for four years. The only part they don’t like is having to say good-bye to the pigs at the end.
