Welcome Beef Producers and Industry Supporters!
SUNY Cobleskill’s American Animal Producers Club will once again be holding the Coby Classic Jackpot at the Cobleskill Fairgrounds. This year we are proud to announce that Emily Hiller (Dairy Production major) will serve as our show chairman with Katie Hopkins (Sustainable Crop Production major) as co-chair. These students along with all the other AAPC club members who are involved in the planning and facilitating of this big event are provided a chance to gain invaluable real world experience in running a jackpot show.
2015 was our first year running the Coby Classic Fall Festival as a jackpot show, and we saw tremendous success! The club received approximately 85 entries for the show, and received massive support from local businesses and beef cattle enthusiasts. The jackpot show will once again consist of a heifer and steer show with payouts of $500 to the Grand Champion Heifer and Steer, $350 to the Reserve Grand Champion Heifer and Steer, and $100 to Honorable Mention Heifer and Steer.
We, however, cannot have a show without your support. As we make improvements to the Coby Classic Fall Festival every year we hope you will continue to support our show by either entering animals or becoming a sponsor. The show chairs are working very hard year-round to make sure that the Coby Classic Jackpot Show is the best it can be.
As in past years, the American Animal Producer’s Club will be working in conjunction with the New York Junior Beef Producer’s Association (NYJBPA). The NYJBPA will be having their Fall Festival on the same weekend. For more information or to view the entry forms for the NYJBPA Fall Festival, please visit their website nyjuniorbeef.org/shows.html or contact Julie Murphy at NYJBPAadvisors@gmail.com.
Sponsor and entry forms have been mailed out to those who have shown interest, and are also available online. Entry forms are due by September 29th. Late entries will be accepted up to day of show for an additional fee, however exhibitors are strongly encouraged to pre-enter.
Thank you all for your continuous support, we look forward to seeing you all! If there are any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact our show chairs or advisors.
