Pride of Woodside at San Mateo County Fair

 

Merilee Raynor, a sixth-grader at Woodside Elementary School, poses with Pedro, her new big pet, the Peninsula Pride Steer she has been raising as a Canada 4-H Club project for the San Mateo County Fair, which runs June 11-19.

Pedro arrived at her Woodside home on Thanksgiving Day weighing 780 pounds. Since then, she and Cole Alves, Mikayla Arvin and Jeanette Masari have taken turns feeding him loads of hay and grain to get him ready to be exhibited at the fair from June 11 to 19.

Visitors may guess his weight to win cash prizes. Toward the end of the fair, the 1-year-old Red Angus will be auctioned off as market beef. The girls are also entering goats, sheep and pigs in competitions at the fair.

The fairgrounds are located at 1346 Saratoga Drive in San Mateo. Visit SanMateoCountyFair.com for more information.
