Canadian Western Agribition launches Evolution Series

Purely Purebred with Mike Millar: News about you from the Sept. 28, 2020 issue of Canadian Cattlemen

As many cattle shows go virtual this year because of COVID-19 protocols, Canadian Western Agribition is no exception. Agribition has come out with their Evolution Series virtual show for the Black Angus, Red Angus, Charolais, Horned Hereford, Polled Hereford, Limousin, Maine-Anjou, Shorthorn, Simmental and Speckle Park breeds.

The deadline for entries is October 22, with the entry fee being $15/entry plus GST. All cattle must be haltered and show ring presentable with photo and video taken within a month of closing deadline. Check the Canadian Western Agribition website for photo and video requirements.


Lloydminster Stockade Roundup still a go

With many cattle shows going virtual this year, many shows have elected to go down that road. One of the exceptions is the Lloyd­minster Stockade Roundup, being held November 4 to 7. In its 42nd year and hailed as one of Canada’s premier livestock events, the four-day event will highlight purebred cattle shows including King of the Ring Bull Calf, Stockade Lady Heifer Calf jackpot shows, Junior events and the Supreme show, just to name a few.

New for this year is the Princess of the Prairies bred heifer showdown on Tuesday, November 3. For Angus enthusiasts the Stockade Roundup will be hosting the Saskatchewan Angus Gold show, working alongside the Saskatchewan Angus Association to provide a quality show. The Speckle Park breed is calling the Stockade Roundup home for their Homecoming 2020 Speckle Park sale on Wednesday, November 4.

Sounds like an opportunity to check out some quality cattle at a first-rate event and experience some Lloydminster Stockade Roundup hospitality. If you’ve never been, it’s worth going to!
