Hang out at the Hi-Pro Feeds Show Ring during this year’s Fair and you are sure to learn a thing or two about showing livestock. All-day dairy cattle shows will showcase local farm animal pride and pique your interest!
See our weekend schedule below!
Show Ring 2 & 3
Like the Hi-Pro Feeds Show Ring, Show Ring 2 and 3 are great places to check out your favourite farm animal in action. You will see goats, sheep, llamas and mini horses strut their stuff with their handlers here!
See our schedule below!
The public is encouraged to not only watch livestock in show, but also wander the aisles of pens to see animals as they wait for their opportunity in the rings!
Come view the Sheep Shearing Demonstration on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Typical mass shearing of sheep today follows a well-defined workflow:
-remove the wool
-throw the fleece onto the wool table
-skirt, roll & class the fleece
-place it in the appropriate wool bin
-press and store the wool until it is transported
You will find sheep shearing demos all weekend in Ring 2 & 3!

A farrier is a specialist in equine hoof care, including the trimming and balancing of horse hooves and the placing of shoes on their hooves if necessary. A farrier combines blacksmith skills with veterinary skills to care for horses’ feet. Come watch the demonstrations all weekend long!
