Manitoba Ag Days is proud to announce we are “giving back”. At our 2013 show we introduced a 50/50 draw with half of the proceeds going to the winning ticket holder and the other half benefiting Agricultural related Charities. We are a not-for-profit organization and will continue to operate this way. Our show is 100% pure farm meaning 100% of our exhibitors are relevant to the agricultural industry. Being able to contribute to this industry has been a fantastic experience for us and we are excited to “PAY IT FORWARD” in Agriculture. Manitoba Ag Days takes great pride in helping other agricultural organizations in communities where our exhibitors and patron’s live.

Moving forward with the 50/50 draws in future shows, we will be giving organizations the opportunity to apply to be the recipients of the proceeds. Applicants are encouraged to apply between January 1st and November 15th each year. The following are the categories available and guidelines.
