LIVESTOCK CENTRAL, PRESENTED BY BMO FINANCIAL GROUP, ADDS EXHIBITS AND PROGRAMMING

Livestock Central at Ag in Motion™ has expanded the scope of experience for visitors to the show this July, near Langham, Saskatchewan. This is sure to be a marked stop for livestock producers on their visit to the Expo. BMO Financial Group is proud to present Livestock Central this year as they celebrate their bicentennial.

“We are overwhelmed by the enthusiasm we have seen to expand this area of the Expo from exhibitors and industry stakeholders alike,” says Michael Hargrave, Livestock Co-ordinator for Ag in Motion. “Livestock Central will have exhibitors and events to peak the curiosity of every visitor coming through.”

“WITH THE GROWING PUBLIC SCRUTINY OF LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION, IMPROVING OUR LIVESTOCK HANDLING PRACTICES WILL HELP THE SUSTAINABILITY OF THE CATTLE INDUSTRY”  – Curt Pate

New this year, Wednesday July 19 will be “Beef Day.” As part of Beef Day, a new speaker series organized in partnership with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture will focus on topics specific to the production and care of beef cattle.

A key feature of Beef Day in the Livestock Pen will be a Low Stress Cattle Handling demo featuring internationally recognized stockmanship instructor Curt Pate. “With the growing public scrutiny of livestock production, improving our livestock handling practices will help the sustainability of the cattle industry,” Pate says. Be sure to mark down the start of Pate’s demos in the Livestock pen at 12:30 pm and 3:30 pm.

The Livestock Handling demo has grown this year to include more handling systems from 2W Livestock Equipment, Stampede Steel Inc., Morand Industries, and Tuff Livestock Equipment. Starting every day at 11:00 am cattle farmers can not only take a look at the various systems on offer, they can actually see them in action, providing a firsthand experience of what a new system can do for their operation. Eliminating handling frustrations, reducing processing time, and ultimately providing the best environment possible for working directly with animals is an interest to anyone working with livestock.
