The numbers are finally in and organizers are pleased.

Over 126,000 people took in Canadian Western Agribition this year.

Highlights include more than 9,400 students and teachers taking part in the Education Program, more than 24,000 people attended the Agribition Pro Rodeo and Full Contact Jousting, while they had a sell out crowd of 11 hundred people for the Party on the Dirt cabaret.

CEO Chris Lane says in a year that's been tough on some farmers and producers, we're grateful that so many people continue to spend their time at Agribition.

"We added new programming this year that is resonating with people and bringing new visitors to the show that haven't been before."

Agribition President Bruce Holmquist says once again, Agribition delivered on its mission to be the premier marketplace for Canadian agricultural products.

"Not only did we see well over a thousand international guests and buyers, but many of them made purchases from places like Argentina, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Australia."
