The first day around the grounds was packed with activities, including a Texas longhorn competition, alpaca fleece judging and the traditional burning of the brand. The branding honours were given to STARS Air Ambulance’s CEO, Andrea Robertson.

“What an honour to be a part of the branding,” she said. “I was a little nervous, I can’t tell a lie, but it was really fun.”

“Grey Cup connected Canada but Agribition connects the world,” said Mayor Sandra Masters. “Eighty countries (and) 1,200 delegates in town. The economic impact of Agribition to our city and province approaches $100 million.”

Agribition runs until December 3, 2022. The full schedule can be viewed on the CWA website.
