Attention International Hereford Enthusiasts:
The 2014 Canadian Western Agribition is fast approaching; not only is this gathering the largest stock show in Canada, the Canadian National Hereford Show returns to Agribition once again this year. If you know of any, or you are an international guest who would like to come experience Agribition, you are being invited to take the opportunity to be a part of the Incoming Buyers Program. This program will cover 50% of your flight and hotel costs to a maximum of $1500 CDN.
Those whom are interested are to fill out:
– a Canadian Western Agribition International Guest Registration form
– and an Application for the Incoming Buyers Program.

We encourage all International Hereford Enthusiasts to contact the Association as well if they decide to attend Agribition this fall.
