Agribition style

AGRIBITION!

I bet that wasn’t what you were expecting, this site was it?!? This week, cattle producers from coast to coast will be in Regina, Saskatchewan to exhibit a representation of their herds, market live animals and genetics, and enjoy a little comradery with their peers. OK, a LOT of comradery! As the final show of the season in Canada, there is a different atmosphere at Agribition – everyone has already won or lost at all the other shows, and they are ready to wind down and enjoy a week celebrating good cattle and good friends.

Since you probably had your fill of cattle show style during Farmfair week, I’ll just do one fashion post tomorrow, and the rest will be agriculture or Agribition memory-related.

Today, we’ll start off with my favorite Agribition events:

Trade Show
Youth Showmanship Competition
Auctioneers Competition
First Lady Classic & Futurity
Canada’s Premier Select Ranch Horse Competition
Canadian Cowboys’ Association Finals Rodeo
Junior Beef Extreme
RBC Beef Supreme Challenge

Here’s what you need to know about packing outfits for Agribition – it’s COLD. Sure, more about there are years when it meanders above the freezing mark for a day or two, more about just to melt all the snow and make getting to tie-outs a sloppy mess, but more often it’s the coldest you’ve ever been. I distinctly recall taking cattle out and my eyelashes freezing together when I was about 16. Not good for the mascara, folks!

So when I pack, I focus on jackets and scarves, because chances are no one will see the cute top you’ve got on anyway. Oh, and thermal socks – you’re gonna want to pack those for sure.

I love this black shearling jacket for style and warmth, along with a great scarf that will look fabulous with a basic long-sleeved shirt if you do ever get to take off the top layer. Disclaimer: I’m not packing to work on cattle this week – I’m just a tourist.

And with that, I’m off to pack for the rest of the week. If you’re interested in the cattle show results, you can follow @livestockxchang on Twitter or Like LivestockXchange.ca on Facebook for real-time updates.
