Contestants showed sheep, swine, goats and cattle at the Masters Showmen event on Friday in Sturgeon. The competition had two categories, masters and intermediate. "I like being with all the animals and being able to show and hanging out with friends," said competitor Ben Taylor. Judge Jade Jenkins said she was looking for a calm, cool showman who knew about the animals and their products. The livestock shown during the Boone County fair will be auctioned Friday evening.
