An Indigenous theme with a special shield dance performance helped kick off the debut of Canadian Western Agribition’s Pro Rodeo Wednesday night.
Courtney MacDougall, Agribition Board Member says the night provided spectators with a first hand taste of First Nations traditions and sacred ceremonies.
The rodeo continues Thursday night at the Brandt Centre beginning at 7:00.
Rodeo events wrap up Saturday.
In the meantime, the Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association is generating a lot of interest from a display at the Agribition food pavilion.
Cattlemen’s manager Ryder Lee says a virtual reality headgear is part of the exhibit.
Lee adds the consumer can hear the rancher describe the work involved in managing the land and raising the animal before it reaches the food table.
He says the exhibit enables his group to engage consumers about food production.
