It's a busy day in the purebred cattle barns as exhibitors prepare for a couple of all-breed competitions. 

Agribition Director Kim McLean says they'll be some top-quality livestock from across Canada in the ring today for the First Lady Futurity, First Lady Classic and Presidents Classic.

"I think every year we get better at all of the genetics that come to town. People become more and more competitive, just with all of the genetics improving. I know we've got quite a few of the International contingencies here and this will be one of the first shows that they'll tune in to, as it gives them an opportunity to see all of the breeds across Canada. "

This year's First Lady Classic features 100 bred heifers.

McLean says there's always lots of excitement for the all-breed shows.

The First Lady Futurity runs from 11 to 12, followed by the First Lady Classic and President's Classic from 12 til 4 in the Chevrolet GMC Arena.

The shows are also available to view online at
