Canadian Western Agribition is just days away

Agribition President Kim Hextall says they're excited to be back for another year, in person and with no masks. 

While the show has expanded over the years, the core of the show remains livestock. 

Hextall says Agribition is known for bringing together the best of the best in top quality livestock together in one location, and this year is no different.

"Our beef numbers, as far as our purebred animals, we are hitting our five year average. So, we are really happy with that, people are coming to town. They're excited to be bringing their livestock to town, bringing their cattle to town, showing their genetics. And of course, we also have sheep, bison, alpaca, as well as some competition for horses."

Agribition over the years has become much more than just a livestock show and sale.

The six day event also features an agricultural trade show, the Grain Expo, an Indigenous Agriculture Summit, the Family Ag Pavillion, as well as top quality entertainment.

She notes also back for this year is the Maple Leaf Finals Rodeo, the Ranch Rodeo, Horse Pulls, Chore Horses, Stock and Cattle dog competitions. 

Hextall says the youth are our future leaders and play a big part in Agribition from helping out in the stalls, showing animals and taking part in the Canadian National 4H Judging Competition, Youth Showmanship and Team Grooming events.

Agribition is a key learning experience as well, welcoming thousands of kids through the registered education program which includes in-person and virtual learning opportunities. 

She says as always Agribition has something for everyone to enjoy.

The show attracts exhibitors and participants from across Canada, the U-S and around the world.

This year's show runs Monday, November 28th to Saturday, December 3 at REAL District in Regina.
