Getting Ready for Iowa State Fair 2010

Goodman Family Farm

I’m knee-deep in Iowa State Fair preparation here at IPTV.

Today I’m editing a piece about one of the farm families of the year. This is the first year for the Way We Live Award.

We went to visit the Goodman family near Oskaloosa and Rose Hill a couple of weeks ago. They have a dairy operation. It is a family farm as both the parents and their adult children are involved. Even the grandkids are now running around helping. And I am serious when I say the 2-year-olds are helping.

You can see the Goodman’s win their award on August 19th inside the Knapp Animal Learning Center.

John Torpy working had inside the Jacobson Arena.

I’ve also got a feature on the new Jacobson Exhibition Center to put together as well.

That is a massive building near the 4-H building on the southwest corner of the fairgrounds. Just the indoor warm up arena is big enough to have the Iowa Barnstormers practice there.

The building was under construction last year and you can see that feature here. It was part of our Iowa Public Television Fair 2009 coverage.

What else will be on TV this year? Any thing you look forward to seeing each year on IPTV’s Fair programs?
