The rows of pigs lay comatose, hardly moving except for an occasional foot twitch, in the barnyard. The cows didn’t look much livelier either. They rested in their pens as large fans blew cool air on them on this hot summer day.

It felt like a different world – the cow droppings smelling in the dirt, the muddy ground from animals getting baths before their debuts in front of the livestock judges, the food booths advertising everything fried. Even the healthy food, like vegetables, was served up fried with a side of heartburn.

Yes, this was the Wood County Fair, which runs through Monday at the fairgrounds, 13800 W. Poe Rd., in Bowling Green.

And it’s a favorite place for one Perrysburg area family – the O’Briens – who camp out and show animals at the fair.
