Matthew Trefiak of Edgerton, Alta., said his family likes to bring bulls to the bull convention because many of their buyers are commercial cattlemen who want to see the animals in person. Trefiak said it was one of the last shows before the family’s bull sale in February. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the family has made more of an effort to market their animals online with high-quality photos and videos. | Photo by Mary MacArthur
