With a very busy schedule and work load with the office staff, we have finally been able to sort through the entries and get letters and reminders sent to all of the Belton exhibitors. As of this hour, we have closed all entries. Listed below is our approximate entry count:
Chester White- 67 exhibitors, 44 boars, 1 bred gilt and 54 open gilts.
Poland China- 40 exhibitors, 36 boars and 39 open gilts.
Spotted- 75 exhibitors, 38 boars, 1 bred gilt and 78 open gilts.
Crossbred gilts, 100 exhibitors, and 150 gilts.
As you can tell, there will be a full house and penning will be tight, problematic, and at a premium. All we can guarantee you is we will give every one an equal shot to attempt to accommodate you with pens. You may have to share a pen(bring a divider or 2), It will almost be essential to pen 2 gilts together for everyone. Please work with us and we will do our very best to have a pen or half a pen for all hogs. If you are not bringing all or some or any of your entries, please contact the CPS staff immediately and let us know of your intentions. A reminder that all of your purebred entries are needed to be reported to the CPS office by Tuesday February 20 along with needed stress test results if applicable. Please assist us in getting this information to us in a timely manner Since Monday is a Holiday, this would be a perfect time to have this sent off to the office this weekend. thanks in advance, and thanks for supporting the CPS Team. jlw
