The 97th annual Pride of the Prairies Bull Show and Sale is setting up at the Lloydminster Exhibition Grounds this weekend with a high number of cattle up for grabs.
The event is taking place on Sunday and Monday with bulls being sold in halter and pen format and is boasting 160 bulls across seven breeds, an increase of 40 per cent over last year.
“All our bulls are semen tested, so we have bulls within our region,” said Sam Hardstaff, agricultural manager with the Exhibition.
“In conjunction with the Pride of the Prairies Bull Sale is the GMack Progress Steer and Heifer Show, and it is Sunday at 10 am.”
Hardstaff said the Progress Steer and Heifer Show is going into its fifth year and is kind of a gear up for the 4-H season.
There will also be a junior show on Saturday at 5 p.m. sponsored by Justamere, which has had a great response according to Hardstaff.
“There’s 123 total head; there’s 80 juniors showing and most of those juniors are 4-H members for the year,” she said.
“So all in all it’s going to be a great weekend.”
