Farmfair International will host the Champion of the World winners for British and European breeds, as well as the Angus Champion of the World Qualifiers, during a custom tour and program to celebrate its 45th anniversary.
The Nov. 7-11 event will introduce Alberta producers to leaders from around the world in their specific breeds, and will provide an opportunity for qualifiers and champions to showcase Alberta genetics at the highest level. As well, it gives local producers the chance to engage with their international counterparts who have risen to the top of their breed through a series of stringent elimination.
Northlands and thecattlemarket.net are partnering on the “best of the best” event.
“This unique program will give us the opportunity to grow the promotion of Canadian cattle and genetics to a global audience,” said Lisa Holmes, a vice-president with Northlands.
There will also be ranch tours and herd visits for breeders wanting to know more about Alberta genetics.
The delegates will include the 2017 Champion of the World Winners for Charolais, Limousin, Hereford, Galloway, Shorthorn, and Simmental, as well as Angus Champion of the World Qualifiers from North and South America, Asia, Europe, and Africa.
