Agribition wraps Saturday with strong sales numbers reported

The Canadian Western Agribition wraps up Saturday after a successful return to normalcy following a pandemic restriction-filled past two years. 

The crowds were back at the REAL District venue, with Agribition welcoming people interested in the livestock industry and agriculture from across Canada, as well as an estimated 1,200 international guests from 63 countries.

At the wrapup news conference Saturday morning, Canadian Western Agribition President Kim Hextall provided some numbers on what transpired during the week with cattle sales. 

Total sales as of Saturday morning stood at $1.67 million which is above their sales in 2020 and 2021. That number is set to go up with another auction that day. The average price per live animal sold was at $15,000. 

At the Speckle Park sale on Wednesday, a cow was sold to Australia for $48,000 and a heifer calf has sold for $30,000.
