Western Stock Show, National

Mid-January
The National Western Stock Show is the world's largest livestock exhibition and the show of shows in Denver, Colo. This is a 16-day trade show for the ranching industry, drawing visitors from throughout the U.S. as well as Mexico and Canada. On view at the stock show are more than 20,000 Hereford, Angus, Simmental, Shorthorn, and Longhorn cattle. Plus Arabian, Morgan, draft, miniature and quarter horses, and ewes, llamas, and yaks. Transactions in the millions of dollars are daily events; the livestock auctions as a matter of course can bring six figures for a single bull.
There are also daily rodeos, with more than 1,000 professional cowboys and cowgirls taking part in calf roping, bull and bronco riding, steer wrestling, and barrel racing. Sheep-shearing contests, displays for children, exhibits and sales of livestock supplies, and exhibitions of Western paintings are other features.
More than half a million people attend, among them ranchers wearing belt buckles with diamonds and boots with the value of diamonds.
