Daughter Like Mother at Fair

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte County girl earned the exact same award that her mother did 25 years ago.


12-year old Madison Scarborough raised the Grand Champion steer at the La Porte County Fair this week.

Her mother, Denise, also raised a steer declared Grand Champion at the 150th La Porte County Fair.

“It wasn’t something we were anticipating going into the fair this year.  Some tears of happiness and excitement came out at the same time, too,” she said.


Denise Scarborough said she and her family were also surprised when her steer was named Grand Champion.

Madison, entering the 7th grade at South Central School, was also a top prize this winner in raising pigs and sheep this year at the fair.


The family has a row crop farm in La Crosse.
