A major highlight for the Canadian cattle industry every November is Canadian Western Agribition. Between the rodeo, cattle sales, tradeshows, auctioneer championships and the general family fun, Agribition brings industries together in Regina, SK.

There is something special about Agribition on the cattle show circuit. – Chris Lane, CEO of Agribition.

There were some unique additions to this year’s program, including free goat yoga, mini-chuckwagon racing, a steer riding rodeo school, a calf genetics sale, and the entertainment of celebrity horse trainer and trick rider, Tommie Turvey. Returning event experiences include the pro rodeo, full contact jousting, and running with the bulls.

Shaun Haney caught up with Agribition’s CEO, Chris Lane, at the conclusion of the show this week. The duo touched on highlights like the $1 million funding contribution to the International Trade Centre, the newest infrastructure at Evraz Place and being the first event to occupy the new facility.
