CVEX & North Vancouver Island Horse Association Cattle Sorting
North Vancouver island horse association CATTLE SORTING

Cattle sorting is a fun-filled family equestrian event for any level of horse and rider. It is derived from the common ranch work of separating cattle into pens for branding, doctoring or transport. The event consists of two riders working in harmony moving ten head of cattle from one pen to another in numerical order with a 60 sec. time limit. The winning team is determined by sorting 10 head in the fastest time or the most head sorted in the 60 sec. time limit. The events are promoted by the N.V.I.H.A. with regular sorting throughout the year and again this year at at the Comox Valley Exhibition.

OPEN BEEF & DAIRY livestock

Cattle ranching, feeding and milking/dairy facilities operate year round, to provide food for our tables.  With much support from our local farmers, the CVEX Beef & Dairy competitions continues to grow as Vancouver Islanders show the judges what they have produced during the year.  Many of these are young farmers who are always willing to share with the public what they have learned about raising, handling and showing their livestock.  To help grow this competition CVEX is increasing the prize amounts to attract more competitors.

Thanks to our local farm businesses for supporting and encouraging our future farmers! The challenge goes out to all our local farmers to join in.
