Sometimes reporters end up in the darndest places.
Go to http://www.baynews9.com/content/news/baynews9/on-the-town/article.html/content/news/articles/bn9/2013/2/7/virginia_johnson_has.html this link to see what happened to a reporter at the Florida State Fair.
In all my years going to the New York State Fair, this never happened to me. I did get to see one calf who was born a few hours before I got there. That's as close as I ever got to seeing a live birth.
