Canadian Western Agribition (CWA) is moving to all virtual programs for 2020, and will deliver a multi-breed cattle show series in Canada.
The 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. Winners will receive a champion banner and $1000 credit towards Agribition’s 50th show in 2021.
“We know that November won’t be the same without Agribition,” says CWA president Chris Lees. “The Agribition Evolution Series is designed specifically for our exhibitors and will give them a chance to promote their cattle and programs to the industry and to the world.”
In addition to the supreme champion competition, the CWA is rolling out the Agribition Junior Spotlight for youth, as well as a virtual Junior Judging Competition. CWA is also announcing programs for fall including:
- Maple Leaf Finals Rodeo TV
- Rodeo 101
- Agribition’s Top 50 in Canadian Ag
- Agribition’s Virtual Education Program
- Agribition Commercial Cattle Exhibitor’s Sale
- AgribitionConnect Exhibitor Showcase
- Virtual Yards
- Agribition All-Stars; and,
- CWA Lifetime Shareholder Program
“When it became clear we couldn’t host Agribition the way we all wanted to in 2020, we went to work on building an Agribition experience that still offers a variety of competition, marketing, entertainment, and education opportunities,” says CWA CEO Chris Lane. “We promised we’d be here for our exhibitors and partners, and despite the challenges and uncertainty of COVID-19 that’s exactly what we hope these programs accomplish.”
