I was there for the steer show.  I thought the barn had some improvements from the previous barn.  There are some things that no thought was put into.  The wash racks were just a total bust.  The men's and women's bathrooms were bigger than the inside wash rack. The inside wash rack had rails and hose bibs all around the wash rack and is in the shape of a C.  But if you tied a calf to each side they would overlap each other.  If you were in at either end you got stuck inside and could not get out.  The other wash rack is out side.  With the weather we had during the show it was freezing out side.  We used the old wash rack to avoid the congestion and had no problems at the old wash rack.  The water was another issue.  We had to string out about 100 feet of hose to get to our stalls to wet bedding down.  The isles are way to small.   The feed alleys had 12 inch pipe support post in them and it made it difficult to get up and down the feed alley.  They would not let you put anything in isles, so the UTV's could go up and down the isles.  We ended up putting our stuff on an outside wall.  The best part was no dust to deal with.  The speaker system needs to be looked at.  It was hard to hear.  The weather was really cold during the show except for one day.  It was nice not to freeze to death.  The stalling was tight.  We had 17 feet of space for 5 calves.  They need to think about bringing back the tie outs.  It makes it hard on the calves being in a 3 feet 6 inch space for 5 days.  Not to mention trying to keep the stalls fresh.  They have some kinks to work out.  In all we had a good time.
