The Missouri State Fair kicks off Thursday in Sedalia, and officials are warning that high temperatures and high humidities could make things tough for the animals being exhibited. Assistant State Veterinarian Doctor Taylor Woods says human discomfort can be a good guage for how uncomfortable animals might be. Woods says water is the key. He says animals need to be kept hydrated and suggests using spray with fans to keep them cool. And he says exhibitors need to make sure they don’t get overheated as well.
