Learn about the Agriculture Industry of Canada at the Agribition event in Regina
Canada has a rich and flourishing agricultural industry. However, there is a lack of awareness and events that highlight the immense growth and progress in the agricultural sector in Canada. People hear a lot of news about the advancements in Canada’s IT, engineering, automobile, and even the real estate industry, so they mostly attend the various events related to these main sectors.
However, there is one major event that is taking place soon in the City of Regina, Saskatchewan that showcases everything related to the agricultural trade industry of Canada, right from livestock to farm-fresh produce. We are of course talking about the Canadian Western Agribition (CWA) event taking place from November 28 to December 3rd, 2022. This Agribition event is a great place for visitors to come and enjoy themselves and even learn about agriculture and livestock.
Let us give you a brief history of the Canadian Western Agribition event that’s held in Regina every year and how it all began…
Many years ago, between the 1960s and 70s, cattle producers and livestock owners from different places had no choice but to travel all the way to either Denver or Toronto in order to showcase their cattle. However, a small group of cattle ranchers decided to host an agricultural event in Saskatchewan in Western Canada, so that they would not have to continuously travel long and painstaking distances to exhibit their cattle.
This idea gave birth to the Agribition event which first launched in Saskatchewan in the year 1971 and was open to all farmers or beef producers in Canada who wanted to exhibit their livestock. The organization of the event began with just five initial founders and later many more people from all over Canada got involved to make the event a success. Agribition soon became a sales hub for cattle breeders and many of them depended on the event to sell more cattle to potential buyers.
Another reason for the huge success of the annual week-long event in Regina is because of the immense support provided to the CWA by the Government of Canada and other official agencies. What’s more, the organizers of the initial Agribition shows had no idea that the event would gain so much popularity and attract worldwide attention – they were surprised by the large number of exhibitors who came to the show from all over to exhibit their purebred or commercial cattle.
Hence, for the past 30 or 40 years, the CWA has grown to become one of the largest agricultural shows in Western Canada and it continues to draw in thousands of food and cattle producers as well as buyers. Agribition continues to grow and so it is much more well-managed and organized today than back in 1971. The event now takes place in state-of-the-art facilities in Regina so as to accommodate over 85,000 visitors and a vast number of livestock and produce exhibitors.
