For most people, the Sumter County Fairs mean funnel cakes, amusement rides, and corn dogs, but for people in the agricultural industry is means livestock shows. I'm not talking about any livestock shows; I'm talking about THE livestock shows in our state-of-the-art, air-conditioned Cow Palace. These shows are the place the best come to play. The top dogs from all corners of the state come together to duke it out. For many in the agricultural industry, the Sumter County Fairs are more than a good time. They're a lifestyle.
