Organizers are extremely pleased with the response to this year's show on all levels. 

While final numbers aren't in yet, attendance for the six-day event is expected to hit 100,000.

Exhibitors were happy to be back at the show, with buyers showing a strong interest as sales topped $1.67 million dollars.

This year's show welcomed more than 1,200 international guests from 63 countries.

Genetics were sold to buyers from Australia, Germany and the United States.

Among the international sales this year was a bred cow from the Canadian Speckle Park sale which sold for $48,000 to a buyer in Australia, and a buyer from Texas picked up an open heifer for $40,000 at the Solid Gold Limousin sale. 

Agribition President Kim Hextall says many international buyers were eager to return to Agribition this year to conduct business.

"Our international program is a significant part of the show and we are pleased to return to pre-pandemic numbers of international guests at Agribition."

The key livestock event on Saturday featured the CN's Agribition Beef Supreme Championship.

The Supreme Champion Female was a Black Angus shown by Enright Farms out of Renfrew, Ontario with additional owners Oattes Cattle Company and Osterndoff Farms.  

The Supreme Champion Bull was a Charolais exhibited by Cays Cattle at Kinistino, Saskatchewan with additional owners Serhienko Cattle Company, Hansen Farms and Thomas Ranch.
