FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: OCTOBER 9, 2017
NEW BULL EVENTS FOCUS ON COMMERCIAL CATTLEMEN IN THE NWSS YARDS
Commercial Cattlemen will have 2 new events of interest to attend or participate in at the 2018 National Western Stock Show. To be held in the Historic Stock Yards the first event will feature Exhibitors that will bring bulls in pens of 5 to 10 head presented and priced like ranchers would find them at a typical ranch sale. Bulls will be presented loose in pens and be priced for private treaty sale to commercial cattlemen attending. These bulls are not allowed to be washed or groomed once they arrive at the National Western Stock Show. Health and brand papers will allow these bulls to transport anywhere in the nation. Several Beef Breeds will be represented.
The second event is sponsored in partnership with OriGEN Genetics. Exhibitors can enter single bulls of any Beef Breed into this competition. The winning bull owner will be offered a 1 year contract with OriGen Genetics where they will collect semen and offer a 1 page spread in their annual Bull Semen catalog all at OriGen’s expense. Additionally, the winning bull will earn a $1000 cash prize. A panel of 6 Judges that are established and reputable commercial cattlemen from cow country will evaluate this set of bulls. These bulls will be exhibited with no grooming and loose in pens as well.
Bull’s in both events will be on exhibit Tuesday and Wednesday, January 16 and 17, 2018. This is in conjunction with the National Western Commercial Female Show and Sale that will be held in the Yards on January 17.
This is an opportunity for the Commercial Cattlemen and Quality Bull Producers to come together and trade quality genetics in the Historic National Western Stock Yards just the way the Yards show was established over 100 years ago. For more information on entering bulls or coming to view and or purchase bulls or commercial females please contact the Livestock Office at 303-299-5559. Entry deadline is December 1st, 2017.
The 112th National Western Stock Show will run January 6-21, 2018 in Denver. For additional information about the 2018 National Western livestock shows, sales and events visit nationalwestern.com/livestock-shows/
