Thursday I was back up at the Minnesota State Fair and it was a very busy place, especially by the livestock barns. The first part of the fair all the 4-H livestock are there, they move out and then the FFA livestock move in along with livestock for the open class shows. Notice all the pick-ups and livestock trailers lined up to load livestock and head for home. They need to get in there while at the same time all the visitors are walking on the street too.

How do you make sure a family pushing a stroller does not walk behind your trailer while backing up? There were a number of State Fair employees in uniform walking in front of the pick-up and watching behind the trailer as they were backed in. It was fun to just watch for a few minutes as all those trailers got in, loaded and moved out. Of course it has been done this way for many years. So the Minnesota State Fair has developed a very efficient procedure to keep fairgoers safe and get livestock moved in and out!
