Due to the growing concern of Avian Influenza, the Lloyd Ex is disappointed to have to announce the Spring Rare & Exotic Sale has been cancelled. 

After recent discussions with the top veterinarians in Saskatchewan, the growing cases of Avian Influenza have made it too risky to carry forward with the April 23 Exotic Bird & Animal Auction, says the Lloydminster Agricultural Exhibition Association.

The Ex knows how disappointing this news is to its volunteers, vendors and spectators, but with a commitment to the welfare of the animals that come to the show, a new plan to host the event will be put together when it is safe to do so. 

Due to the expenses associated with conducting this one-day sale, The Ex relies on the bird portion of the event to cover a significant amount of its operational expenses, and for this reason, they cannot move forward with livestock only.
