Cattle breeders’ hard work and dedication were put on display at Ag Ex, Manitoba’s largest all-breed cattle show.
Formerly known as the Manitoba Livestock Expo, Ag Ex was held in Brandon at the Westoba Agriculture Centre of Excellence on Oct. 29 to 31.
This annual event provides Manitoba cattle producers the venue to highlight and market purebred and commercial cattle, including Angus, Hereford, Simmental, Charolais, Gelbvieh, Limousine, Shorthorn and mixed breeds.
The provincial exhibition supports junior exhibitors with additional prize money to any steers shown at the event that go on to win at 4-H achievement days or regional shows.
Ag Ex sees approximately 100 exhibitors and more than 500 head of cattle take part and is considered an important showcase and marketing platform, as well as a stepping stone to proceed on to the Canadian Western Agribition, taking place in Regina in November.
