Officials are happy with opening day attendance at this week’s Canada Farm Progress show in Regina.
Chair Rene Carpentier says attendance is on par with other years.
He says about 12 thousand passed through the gates on opening day Wednesday.
The Farm Progress show wraps up Friday in Regina with the theme, Heritage Day.
Close to 40 thousand people are expected to attend the 3-day Farm Progress Show.
A couple from Minton, Derek and Tannis Axten, were named this year’s Outstanding Young farmer during the Farm Progress Show.
Minton is about 145 kilometers south of Regina.
