Re: Crossbreds at the 2020 STC
I think its a good idea. 1) if they can only make one trip, it might as well be to our (the CPS breeds) party, 2) might add some new faces to the STC that would typically only go to Louisville and that in turn MIGHT spur some added sales activity on the purebred side, 3) might add some incremental revenue to the CPS coffers. The only downside I see will be pen space becoming that much more of a premium with a large junior show, then the traditional CPS open show pens, and now 10/50/100(??) more pens for cross animals. (And then a secondary 'concern' would be having three crossbred boar shows in a month may water down all three?) End of the day, my vote would be do it - won't know if we don't try.
