The Canadian Western Agribition ended its year just over 260 thousand dollars in the hole. It was the show's worst performance in 30 years.

Sales at the show are increasing, but so are costs.

And some of the loss can be blamed on lower attendance.

The out-going President, Bill Aulie, says things will have to change. "We're going to have to increase some fees due to our energy costs going up." says Aulie.

Meanwhile, the Agribition chose it's new executive on Friday.

The new President is Gary Anderson, and rancher and farmer from Bethune.
