Faces of Farming - Hextall Livestock

By Tate Wrubleski, Multimedia Communications Specialist, Communications Branch

February 2020

Kim and Jack Hextall are fifth generation cattle farmers ranching just outside of Grenfell, Saskatchewan. Canadian Western Agribition (CWA) has always been an important event in the calendar for their operation and for their family to connect with other ranchers and members of the industry. CWA is the largest livestock show in all of Canada and brings thousands of people from across the world to Regina.

2020 was a different year for CWA, but with innovation and creativity the team was able to transition elements of the show to a digital platform. Kim is currently the vice-president of CWA and has been a board member since 2013. She was involved in planning CWA’s shift to remote delivery.

Watch below to see their story.
