10 Years Strong: The Saskatchewan Beef Expo

The 10th Annual Saskatchewan Beef Expo is set to take place at the Prairieland Ag Center from April 2 – 4, 2024. This milestone event continues to uphold Prairieland’s commitment to supporting the growth and development of youth in agriculture. The Saskatchewan Beef Expo offers a unique opportunity for young cattle producers to enhance their knowledge and skills in various aspects of the industry.

Kirk Stierwalt, a long-time cattle operator and clinician from Leedey, Oklahoma, is this year’s featured clinician. Stierwalt will kick off the event with a series of demonstrations: Basics and Equipment, Clipping, and Grooming. On day two, he’s back to lead the hands-on clinic, where participants take what they learned from the demonstrations and put it into practice with Stierwalt’s guidance. Following the clinic, there will be a showmanship demonstration and show. These activities provide exhibitors with the opportunity to enhance their ability to present
an animal in the show ring.

Day Three features the Heifer and Steer Shows, where participants showcase their 2023 born heifer and market steer. The event will conclude by awarding the Grand Champion and Reserve
Grand Champion of each show. New this year, both Grand Champions will each receive a $250 scholarship that will go towards their post-secondary education.

Prairieland is proud to host this family-friendly event, shaping the future of the cattle industry and fostering a passion for agriculture among the next generation.
