The Beef, Swine, and Sheep Skill-A-Thon exam proved to be difficult for Thursday's competitors.
The Skill-A-Thon tests students on parts of the animal, skeletal structure, meat cuts, and different breeds of animals.
Participants may sign up to further their knowledge about the animals, such as the animals' needs, where they come from, what type of meat comes from each area of the body, and the different breeds of animals.

Most youth would not sign up to take a test during the summertime, but those who did have the chance to earn some neat opportunities.
At the Logan County Fair, the prize for the best score is a plaque. However, if competitors qualify to the Ohio State Fair, they have the opportunity to win belt buckes and other various prizes. If the competitor is named Outstanding Market Exhibitor, he or she can compete at the National Fair on the Ohio Skill-A-Thon team. Nationals will be held in Louisville, Kentucky.
Skill-A-Thons are held for a variety of animals, including a Horse Skill-A-Thon.
