It was a busy weekend for the Agrim Centre in Rimbey.

On Dec. 11, the centre was filled with youngsters from the Rimbey area who were given an opportunity to learn first hand about farm safety when they attended the Ag for Life Rural and Farm Safety Day.

During the day the students were treated to hands on presentations which helped farm safety become a very real and tangible.

Working in tandem with Alberta based Ag for Life organization, the rural and farm safety day offered an interactive line-up of simulators, activities and demonstrations for students at eight stations. The youngsters had an opportunity to learn more about large animal, ATV, water, powerline, grain and large equipment safety.

Clown, Blayne Wendland was also on hand during the activities.

Rimbey Ag Society Tim Edge is pleased the farm safety day came to fruition.

“We’ve had this in the works for months,” he said. “We want to support families in agriculture an show what this building can do for the community.”

On Dec. 12, the popular Ultimate Cowboy event was held at the Agrim Centre.

The Rimbey Roster included such competitors as Canada’s newly crowned All-Around Champion Josh Harden of Big Valley. Also in the line up were favourites like Branden Dillman of Rocky, bronc riding champion LeRoy Eash from Montana and Austin Stewart from North Carolina who is a fifth generation cowboy, entertainer and trick roper.

With 65 heated box stalls added to the Agrim Centre, the building is proving to be versatile and easily accomodates a participants and crowds for a variety of shows and events.
