The Dairy Show Program

The Dairy Show gives producers from across the province an opportunity to show off the best cows in their herd.

The Alberta Dairy Congress is four days of entertainment, information and networking opportunities designed to promote agriculture in Alberta, with a focus on the dairy industry. Do Albertans really know where their food comes from, other than the grocery store? Most of us probably know our milk, meat and produce comes from farms, but how much do we actually know about the way our food is grown and harvested? And about those who produce it?

The Annual Alberta Dairy Congress is your chance to take an inside look at the dairy industry and get in touch with Alberta’s agricultural roots.

This year's judges are;

  • Mike Flaman from Vibank, Saskatchewan - Junior Show
  • Jeff Donohoe from Petersfield, Manitoba - Holstein Show
