NORTHWOOD, Iowa - The Worth County fair is underway, and a heavy focus is again on agriculture.

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig stopped by the fair on Wednesday. Naig said county fairs play a very important role in the agriculture community, particularly for young people.

"It's really about learning about agriculture, coming and competing. It's great lessons for our young people to work hard, to prepare. You come and you compete, and you deal with the results. And if you didn't do as well as you thought you wanted to, you get to work harder next year and try to do better. And that's a great life lesson for those young people," Naig said.

The Worth County Fair runs through June 23rd.
