Virtual breed shows headline Agribition in 2020

Purely Purebred with Mike Millar: News about you from the November 2020 issue of Canadian Cattlemen

More details are available on Canadian Western Agribition’s multi-breed virtual cattle show series. The Agribition Evolution Series, presented by RBC and supported by the Canadian Beef Breeds Council, will feature 11 breeds with Grand Champion Bulls and Females from each breed competing for the Evolution Series Supreme Champion title. The Evolution Supreme Champions will receive a Champion Banner and $1,000 credit towards Agribition’s 50th show in 2021.

Agribition is also rolling out a virtual competition for youth: the Agribition Junior Spotlight, presented by BMO, as well as a virtual junior judging competition. The Agribition Junior Spotlight will mirror the Evolution Series.

In addition, Agribition is introducing several new programs, ranging from Rodeo 101 to a free virtual education program for teachers and students. Show organizers are also continuing several existing initiatives in 2020 including the Next Gen Agriculture Mentorship Program, the BMO Celebrating Women in Ag Award, and the CWA Scholarship Program.
