The Manitoba Livestock Expo (MLE) is an all-breeds cattle show with approximately 400 cattle showing in a number of classes, as well as a National Simmental Cattle Sale. The 2012 MLE Tradeshow offers vendors the unique opportunity to showcase their products to the cattle industry. As tradeshow vendors at MLE we encourage you to not only meet the participants in your booth but to mingle with them in the barns and in the arena.

The MLE Tradeshow will be begin on Thursday November 1st and end on Saturday November 3rd. While static unmanned displays will be allowed at this year’s show, we encourage all vendors to man their booths.

On Thursday the Little Lady Classic will showcase the heifers and will be followed by the Taste of Beef. The Taste of Beef is an opportunity to meet the cattle show participants while enjoying samples of beef dishes prepared by the Crocus Plains Culinary Arts Students. Tickets for the Taste of Beef are $12 for exhibitors (advance sales only).

In addition to the 5 cattle shows occurring on Friday, the Transcon National Trust Simmental Sale will take place. This sale will bring additional cattle producers from across Canada and the Northern US, increasing your exposure!

Following a full day of shows, which include the Junior Cattle show and the National Limousin Show, the event will close on Saturday with the Supreme Breed Extravaganza!

This year’s Manitoba Livestock Expo promises to be an exciting one!
