2013 Kenosha County Fair Hay Bale Throw coverage

The hay bale throwing competition is an annual part of Friday evening at the Kenosha County Fair.

The event is coordinated by the Slades Corners Lucky Clovers 4-H Club. Participants compete to see who can throw a bale of straw the farthest. Contestants are divided by age and gender, with the younger classes using a smaller bale as well.

Techniques vary, as does experience with hay bales. You don’t have to be a hale chucking expert to participate. Anyone can give it a toss.

Here’s a video sampling of Friday night’s action:
