And Saturday both sheep and steer were shown off in the fair's livestock pavilion.
The youngsters competing in showmanship are mostly from California and a few traveled in from out of state.
But a local took Saturday's top prize in steer showmanship and the teen handler said it felt good to be recognized for his hard work.
"In the winter time, you usually only wash them once a day, but once the summer starts going, like two times a day. And then showmanship every day, as soon as you get home. It just means a lot to win it," said Marc Miranda, Prather.
The Red Wave Classic is presented by Fresno State's Jordan College of AG Sciences and Technology. It continued Sunday, with heifer and hog divisions.
