One reason many go to the Arkansas State Fair is the many selections of animals that are brought here for judging and selling. Animals include cattle, swine, horses, goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks, milk cows, donkeys, etc.
There are four cattle barns, filled with cattle for judging, and separate barns for swine, horses, and birds. There is also a baby-animal barn where you can pet many small animals, which is a favorite with kids (and me!). I find nothing more soothing than holding a baby chick.
