Ag Education

The Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba is proud to present two Ag Education oppurtunities at the Manitoba Livestock Expo - MooMania and the Amazing Rangeland Adventure.  See below for details.

MooMania

The Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba is hosting MooMania at our Manitoba Livestock Expo (the largest cattle show in the Province) which takes place at the Keystone Centre in Brandon from November 1st to the 3rd, 2012. MooMania is tailored specifically to children in grades 3-5 and we have tied in the unique learning opportunities to many parts of the curriculum for these grades.  Students will have the opportunity to learn about the life of a cow, benefits of beef, take tours of the barns where producers are preparing their cattle for shows and sales and participate in a mock cattle show and fun auction. 

MooMania will take place on Thursday November 1st.  We have room for a limit of 3 classes or approximately 90 students per session and will be offering 2 sessions in the morning and 2 sessions in the afternoon.  Classes will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.  For additional information, please contact Jennifer Skiehar at (204) 726-3590 ext. 1003 or by email at jenniferskiehar@brandonfairs.com.
