All about the animals at the Benton Franklin Fair
BENTON COUNTY, Wash. - The Benton Franklin Fair and Rodeo has come and gone. For some, it was all about the fried treats and rides. For others, it was about the animals.

Lillie Shippy is just 11-years-old but has been raising pigs for years. She first started helping her grandma and is now doing it all on her own. Thanks to the help of WSU's youth extension program

She entered her pig named 'Flower' with mixed emotions on letting him go.

She said, "Sometimes I get sad. but i know they're going to make great bacon and all that."

Flower fetched close to a thousand dollars at this year's fair auction.
