Children work to make goats ready for the Market Wether class showing Tuesday at the Boone County fairgrounds.

COLUMBIA — On Tuesday afternoon, goats's coats were trimmed, cut and prepped for the market wether class competition. Goats are typically clipped so their muscles are seen more clearly for judging.

The Boone County Fair opened at 4 p.m. Tuesday. The first night's events include motocross racing, a market lamb show and the Boone County Royalty Competition.
