Agribition is the largest livestock show in Canada, and known as the best beef show in North America. As well as beef cattle, Agribition features horses, bison, sheep, goats, an extensive agribusiness trade show and Pro Rodeo entertainment. The show dates for 2019 are 25th to 30th November and is held in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Agribition receives over 1,200 international guests from over 86 countries, promoting the sale of animals and world class beef genetics to both Canadian and international customers. The Canadian cattle industry maintains an ongoing effort to enhance beef quality through breed selection and genetic improvement programs. Demand for Canadian livestock genetics is high around the world – Canada’s exports of bovine semen in 2018 were worth over $120 million, compared to Australian exports of an estimated $3.7 million.
Canada is keen to promote attendance of Australian livestock companies at Agribition. The Incoming Buyers Program is again on offer, which includes 50% of travel expenses up to C$1,500 for eligible participants. Also available is the International Guest Program featuring:
- Complimentary show pass
