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.

WCC is open to all current 4-H Club members, 12 – 17 years of age as of January 1 of the calendar year, who have a 4-H project. Youth 18 – 21 years of age must belong to a local breed club/association or a 4-H club. All breeds show together in respective classes with the colored breeds entering the ring first.
