With a great showing of livestock and thousands of visitors through the Keystone Centre during the four-day event, organizers are very pleased with the results. Ron Kristjansson, general manager at the Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba. “I would really like to give a big Salute to the efforts of Co-Chairs Dallas Johnson and Brent Blaine and the hard work of all the volunteers that contribute to the events of the Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba.” Manitoba AG EX Co-Chair Dallas Johnson has been involved with this event for a number of years and recognizes the efforts of all the cattle producers, who came out to show their stock and take part, despite the weather and other challenges they've faced this year. “The support of our show is critical to us moving forward and developing even bigger and better shows for the livestock industry in this part of the world.” Says Johnson. For the 4th year in a row, the Manitoba Rodeo Cowboys Association provided top-level rodeo competition with their year-end finals event. New MRCA president, Mark Fraser, congratulated all the competitors for another successful year and contributes the prosperity of the event to the partnerships. Fraser also extended a big Special Thanks to all the fans and supporters of rodeo who came out to support the event on the weekend. He says the competitors work hard all summer to get to the final championship and they rally through three straight nights of competition. He says we are very proud of all their accomplishments and thank them all for their efforts.   The Manitoba Superhorse 50/50, NAERIC Barrels of Cash, and Hagan Performance and Ranch Horse Sale rounded out the equine competitions and sales and had a successful weekend to complete the event.
