WHAT IS A MOE SHOW?
A Mark of Excellence Show, or MOE Show as it is more affectionately referred to, is a Hereford show given special status by the provincial associations and the Canadian Hereford Association. Animals shown at MOE Shows are eligible for recognition under the MOE Awards Program. Please scroll down and fill out the online form if you would like to apply for an award for one of your animals.
Approved MOE Shows
MOE shows are designated annually in February and include the Canadian National Junior Hereford Bonanza. Each year there are three National Shows held: the Western National held at Farm Fair International in Edmonton, the Eastern National held at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, and the Canadian National held at Canadian Western Agribition in Regina.
