Re: Crossbreds at the 2020 STC
I am fine with having crossbred boars and gilts at the stc if and only if it will help bring revenue to certified pedigrees swine and or Berkshire, but my question is, they already have a hard time at the spectacular in Louisville getting the board to sell, do we really believe we will get the best quality that will bring the most money we can get. Do we really think it is worth while taking up pens for a few crossbreds that may bring a 1000 dollars, instead of giving those to open breeders to split up gilts and boars, or split up JR pigs? Like I said if it will bring more money to the associations then that is awesome, I just question if it is really viable to go to all that trouble to do!
