The Western Canadian Classic was started in 1985 by a group of volunteers from BC, AB, SK & MB. The first committee was comprised of Bruno Giacomazzi, Gordon Rendle, John Blair, Carol Wright, Dwayne Congdon, Don Chalack, Larry Brack, Dale Strudwick, Glenn Gurr and Desmond Donohoe. The committee designed a concept of hosting a competitive show dashed with social functions to promote friendly interaction between the participants for all four provinces. A set of objectives was established and these have been met over and over again each year.
- To provide a learning experience for our dairy youth
- To provide an opportunity for friendly competition
- To stimulate friendships among Western Canadian young dairy enthusiasts
- An opportunity for agri-business to support our youth today
- An opportunity for youth to learn from the agri-business sector
- To promote the dairy industry to the public
- To help maintain or stimulate interest in agriculture
The first WCC was held in 1985 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. This show consisted of 3 showmanship classes, 3 calf conformation classes, judging and pedigree competitions, best of three class and stall competition. Over the years WCC has grown and now consists of 3 showmanship classes, 7 Conformation classes, judging and pedigree competitions, best of three class, stall competition, clipping competition, Premier Province Competition and dairy science quiz which involves general dairy anatomy and nutrition questions.
