Boulder County Fair Animals Get Free Healthcare

Pig at the Boulder County Fair (Macie May/Longmont Observer)

For the past 150 years animals have been a part of the Boulder County Fair. Each year animals are examined by local veterinarians.

These examinations ensure that the animals are healthy especially if they are headed to the Colorado State Fair.

These local veterinarians have donated their time to examine animals entered into the fair. Those veterinarians include Dr. Laurie Stanley, Dr. Gal Rapport, Dr. Tom Pryor, Dr. Don Own, Dr. Charlotte Obermeier, Dr. Karen McCormick, Dr. Jessica Johnson, Dr. Kathy Gagliardi, Dr. John Flinchum, Dr. Christie Downey, Dr. Sarah Appleby, and Dr. Steve Benscheidt.

The following is a schedule for the times animals can expect to be seen:
