Livestock Show and Sales

CRE has a proud heritage as an Agricultural Society with our first events being Livestock Shows and Sales. It is a tradition that continues on today due to our unique location on Highway 13 and facilities that are designed to host Agriculture.


Agriculture conferences and training are always welcome at CRE. With our unique location on Highway 13 and our Battle River Trading District catchment area, we can attract attendees from anywhere in East Central Alberta including Saskatchewan. Agriculture is strong in our area and we would love to work with you to develop your next Agriculture focused conference.
