The CPS staff continues to keep quite busy and we truly appreciate the opportunity to be able to serve you in various functions. On a daily basis, we take litter recordings as our number 1 goal, and getting them pushed out as well as the many transfers and phone calls assisting breeders and parents keeps the girls busy.
We have been able to get our WPX entries calculated and I provide the following numbers to you. An exhibitor list will be forth coming in the next several week.
Chester White-72 exhibitors, 23 boars and65 open gilts
Poland China-60 exhibitors-37 boars and 46 open gilts
Spotted-77 exhibitors-46 boars-79 open gilts and 4 bred gilts.
There are a good number of gilts double entered in the Jr. Show and Open show which increases our number of Exhibitors.
A detailed letter was sent out of the office today to each one of these exhibitors explaining the instructions they need to follow to assist the CPS staff. Your first item is concern is to follow the Health Regulations and please remember that PRV Test is required. additionally, we are wanting the ear notches and registration numbers of your open entries forwarded to the office on or before Wednesday May 24. A reminder also that stress results are required on all Poland and Spotted entries in the open show. This is a different requirement than the Jr. show. Please call me with any questions.
