Canada’s biggest livestock show, Agribition, is going online with a livestock competition.

The actual November show was postponed due to the corona virus but organizers sought something to fill the gap.

An 11-breed show will happen online with a panel of judges declaring the winners from videos submitted by owners. 

The videos will run between 45 seconds and 60 seconds with no music or voices on them.     

Judges will select the champions in 11 breeds and choose the supreme champion from the 11 top animals.

Deadline for entry is Oct. 22.

Agribition with hold a live and simulcast auction at Johnstone Auction Mart in Moose Jaw Nov. 28, selling pens of three and five open heifers.

There are plans for a junior online event as well.
