  • Baylee Modaff, 7 of Naperville takes a break from setting up pig pens to rest on two of her family's Yorkshire pigs at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St. Charles. The Modaff family owns a farm south of Oswego and spends their summers raising pigs and taking them to several local county fairs, including Kane and DuPage county fairs. Baylee and her brothers show several different breeds during the fairs. Her mother, Tracy, said she and her husband grew up showing livestock at county fairs so they enjoy giving the same experience to their kids. "We say they're like country kids living in the city," Tracy said.
