Agribition was a success for organizers, Taylor Swift helped


The 52nd Canadian Western Agribition (CWA) concluded on November 25th with great success and a week filled with memorable experience­s. Shaun Kindopp, CEO of Canadian Western Agribition, reflects on the results, sharing that the new initiative­s were well aligned with the strategic plan and very well received.

“This year, we launched several new initiative­s which are part of our strategic direction to grow the show in new exciting areas,” said Shaun Kindopp, Agribition CEO. “We really feel that CWA is part of the fabric of this community and offers something for everyone. We appreciate everyone who attended and supported both new and existing events.”

Ruth Wilder was the lucky winner of the highly anticipate­d CWA Ultimate Taylor Swift Giveaway. She is thrilled to attend the Eras Tour in Australia, through a partnershi­p with CWA and Sask Milk.

“The reactions from the Taylor Swift Giveaway were priceless,” Kindopp reflects. “We strive to deliver an unforgetta­ble experience for our visitors and create unique memories associated with Agribition.”

Another highlight was the inaugural Canadian Animal Agtech Awards, presented by Deloitte, which honored three innovative Agtech companies. Lastly, the BFO Freestyle bullfight event mesmerized audiences with top-notch athletes from both Europe and North America.

Other notable events included the coronation of the new brand ambassador, Miss Rodeo Agribition, Ari Dyck, and crowd favorites like Stock Dogs, Ranch Rodeo, Maple Leaf Finals Rodeo, and the iconic Beef Supreme happening on November 25th.

Kim Hextall, President of Agribition, echoed this sentiment, “People are ecstatic about the traffic through the barns and the trade show. It has been the favorite week of the year for many, with great anticipati­on for the Supreme.”

With attendance on par or exceeding 2022 numbers and record-breaking rodeo attendance, the 52nd Canadian Western Agribition truly provided an unforgetta­ble experience for all attendees.
