Times Change

Admittedly, it has taken us too long to change the graphics in this location and we apologize for that. With the website going under new ownership, a computer melt-down here in the office and other priorities that seem to take precedence, here we are in mid- November nearing winter.

Change becomes inevitable as does that seasons as evidenced by the change of temperatures within the last 3 days. There has been quite a bit of activity the past several months with State fair and Team Purebred events, elite National Barrow Show Hog College animals, much improved National Barrow show breed sales, a Fall Classic that was moved up 4 weeks, a change at the top of Team Purebred, and announced changes for a 2020 “Exposition” and Summer Type Conference dates and venues.

Hopefully all of these changes will prove to be for the better and again time will tell. Without going into detail, we present the following 2020 show schedule:

  • Southwest Type Conference- Belton, Texas
    • February 27th -29th
  • CPS Extravaganza- Lebanon, Indiana
    • Saturday, March 28th **NEW DATE**
  • 9 Breed Exposition- Indianapolis, Indiana
    • June 8th – 13th **NEW LOCATION & DATE**
  • Summer Type Conference- Des Moines, Iowa
    • July 6th- 11th **NEW LOCATION & DATE**
  • National Barrow Show- Austin, Minnesota
    • September 12th – 15th
  • Fall Classic- Duncan, Oklahoma
    • October 21st- 24th

All of these events will include the Chester White, Hereford, Poland China, and Spotted breeds. Please feel free to contact the national office at 309-691-0515 for entry requirements, entry deadlines, or breed requirement necessary to exhibit.

Thank you for your past support and we look forward to working with each of you in the these changing times.
