California Summer Trials 2021, Minnesota Style

In true 2020/2021 style, we are participating in the California Summer Trials at a more-than-safe distance...2000+ miles (in Minnesota). In 'normal' years we look forward to the trials with great excitement, showcasing our products alongside breeders and their new genetics (the true stars of the show). It's an event unlike any other in the industry, and we're always honored to be part of it. 

In the midst of a global pandemic, we're getting a little creative with our participation this year, while we cross our fingers and toes to be back in person in 2022. 

CAST 'Minnesota style' means virtual + short & sweet + entertaining + educational. We hope to provide a quick look at some of the products we would otherwise have showcased in our booth. Here's the short list so you can jump right to a product you're looking for; and, at the very end is a list of resources that may be helpful if you're looking for samples, product information, or order support. 


1 Quart Square Pot with Tag Slots & Companion Carry Tray

Our newly released 1-quart square pot (700162C) features tag slots on all four sides and pairs with a 10-count carry tray (705200C). The pot's tag slots are durable and seamless, while the carry tray's low profile allows for visibility of all branding types: hanging tags, adhesive tags, and stake tags.
