Minutes after posting this, my Sponsor "Maverick" forwarded me this email from Jim Sharp the General Manager at the Livestock Expo.
We received a lot of similar feedback after that particular year. We have since set up a tent near the teams and are judging outside the building away from the animals. It worked out very well last year and the set-up will be the same again this year. The teams and judges were very satisfied with the adjustment that we made. Please consider participating again this year. We would love to have you back.
Thank you again for your interest in the Keystone Classic Barbeque.
