The Canadian Western Agribition sees numerous farming operations travel from out of province for the week-long event.
However, there are a number of local farming operations at Agribition this year.
Glen Gabel is one of the local cattle producers in this year’s Agribition, and says there are a number of positives being a local producer at Agribition.
“Being local, you can be in your own bed every night and have a good night’s rest, this concrete does get a little tiring,” Gabel jokes. “Agribition itself, I think we’ve been here for 10 years, give or take, and the exposure, the networking (are all positives). There’s exhibitors and breeders from Ontatio to BC here, International guests, they have bull sale customers wander through, you can socialize with them.”

Gabel farms 10 miles north of Regina, and says for him, Agribition is time to relax and enjoy company with friends.
“I don’t know how good or bad this is, but it’s like a holiday. I don’t go to Mexico, and I don’t go to other warm places,” Gabel says. “To me, this is a holiday, you see friends, family, acquaintances, and you get to have some fun, and kick back and relax and see some of the best cattle in the world.”
