2020 Summer Type Conference Breed updates
Posted by Jack Wall on December 10, 2019, 12:27 pm
There has been some good discussions being held with the changes to the 2020 Summer Type Conference now scheduled for Des Moines, Iowa on July 6-11. With the Exposition being moved to Indianapolis, several breeders have informed us that they had bred for November litters with the hopes of possibly consigning boars and gilts for the Des Moines, Iowa Show. The 4 breeds that make up CPS have individually discussed these as either a full Board, Executive Committee or as a decision of Chairman of the Board and made the following ruling.
The Chester White, Hereford and Spotted board have voted to allow November farrowed boars and gilts to be entered into the open show at the 2020 Summer Type Conference. The Poland China breed will stay with the December 1, 2019 farrowed boars and gilts and after schedule as they have the past few years. Please note this is a change in the farrowing date for this event from what has been posted earlier in the year calendar.
I suspect the Team Purebred dates will remain December 1 and after, but they will make this decision on January 4 when this Board meets. Please call with any questions. Sincerely, Jack Wall- CEO
