I have not heard anything one way or another.  I would guess that the Junior Shows will go barring any type of disaster with Covid.  It will likely fall on the State of Colorado and what their Governor is seeing or feeling.

Election will be over by then.  It will go on as planned.

Colorado reconsidered having high school football this spring but nixed it. I some ways it's a liberal state because the rural folks are out numbered. I wonder if the banning of spring football will cost the Democrats votes in the upcoming election.........I think it will be fascinating to watch.

That show was unstoppable over the years........world wars......blizzards and what not. But the Democrats and the Colorado governor stuck a fork in the ***** this year. My love goes out to the Democrats.

What are the options now for steers that were going to Denver? I called the American Royal and they will not extend their DNA submission deadline.

I am from Nebraska, and there is some serious buzz that Grand Island NE is looking at trying to put something together. 

The Junior Premium Sale would be nothing compared to what Denver did, but any show is better than nothing at all.

Louisville is still an option for some of these steers that were being targeted to Denver.  I wonder if maybe the Black Hills Stock Show would maybe look at showing Fat Steers.  I don't know if they have some type of unwritten agreement with Sioux Falls?

I been thinking about it. I bet that it is a security issue. The complex is so spread out. You have Black Lives Matter and Antifa in town. It's a riot waiting to happen.

There is a rumor that they are using the covid mandates as excuse for their not being on time with the construction in the yards, they are way behind on the improvements that should be done.
