November Reminders


The next several weeks, leading up to December 1, 2015, are important to CPS breeders regarding pedigree registrations, transfers, pig show requirements and having happy and satisfied customers. Be certain that the CPS staff will continue to do anything within their capabilities to assist members. Please take time to read and understand the important messages below.

Fall Classic exhibitors

  • All breeding stock exhibitors were mailed a letter from the CPS office with instructions of the health regulations, schedule of events and a submission form for ear notches and registration numbers of breeding stock entries. These items must be submitted to the CPS office on, or prior to, Tuesday, November 10.
  • Poland China and Spotted Fall Classic breeding stock exhibitors are REQUIRED to have a documented stress test (only negative or carriers are allowed) on all entries. The CPS staff is requiring this information also be forwarded to the office on or before November 10.
  • All pedigrees that the CPS staff needs to bring to Duncan, Oklahoma, (breeding stock or weanling pig entries) must be processed on or before Friday, November 13. Please instruct the CPS staff, when registering your litter(s), if the CPS staff is to take the papers to Duncan.

San Antonio and/or Houston gilt requirement

  • Please note that any junior breeding gilt exhibited at these two events (and possibly others across the country) MUST be from a litter recorded from the respective breed association no later than DECEMBER 1. Exceptions are not allowed at these venues and shows. Make certain you have litter applications, DNA submissions, AI or breeding certificates and proper fees sent to the CPS office on or before this date. It is the responsibility of the breeder(s) to provide timely and accurate information to their valued customers.

Questions, call the CPS office at (309) 691-0151. Have a great November.
