Crossbreds at the 2020 STC
Posted by Jack Wall on November 26, 2019, 3:08 pm
I will start this short dialogue that what I am posting here is not my idea nor something that I am propagating. Just attempting to get peoples thoughts, ideas on the interest level in the following. Two people have contacted me since the announcement of the Exposition moving to Indianapolis and the STC moving to Des Moines the summer of 2020 about instituting a cross bred breeding class and/or a crossbred boar class. Their thought process is that for those from states West and Southwest, they believe one trip to the Midwest in the summer will be all they would take, and would feel energy and willingness to support a summer show in Des Moines instead of the extra miles to Indianapolis. My question is and we will keep this simple, should the CPS breeds strongly consider having a show and sale for crossbred gilts and boars for the summer of 2020 with the Summer Type Conference? If yes, would you make this a show where all crossbred gilts that are exhibited will be required to be sold if selected for the sale?
I am interested in your thought process, and I am strictly bringing this up as an open event, not a Jr. Team Purebred event. Please offer your thoughts. Thanks, JLW
