Canadian Western Agribition announced its 2020 results at its annual general meeting recently, reporting an operational loss of $773,989 attributed entirely to the postponement of the 2020 show due to COVID-19.

In 2020 Agribition introduced more than a dozen online programs including the Agribition Evolution Series, Canada’s first- ever multi-breed virtual cattle show. Agribition’s new Virtual Education Program has already reached more than 1,400 students and continues year-round. 

Agribition is now setting its sights on a return to a full week of rodeo, shopping and livestock competition in November 2021. The 50th show will be headlined by 12 national breed shows — the only time all breeds have held their national competitions under one roof.
