First-Ever NWSS Angus Pen Heifer Show set for Jan. 16
For generations, the carload and pen Angus bull show has been a unique tradition at the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in Denver, Colo. New this year, exhibitors can enter their registered-Angus heifers in the competition that ranks their ability to present a uniform group of cattle.
The first-ever NWSS Angus Pen Heifer Show will take place Jan. 16, 2016, down in the Yards.
“We’re really looking forward to hosting the pen show for Angus heifers this year,” says Jaclyn Clark, American Angus Association events and education director. “The breed’s leading maternal traits will be on display as breeders take part in this one-of-a-kind competition.”
For specific details on the bull or heifer carload and pen competitions, please reference the official rules and regulations.
Nov. 20 is the ownership and entry deadline for all participants in the carload and pen show, Super-Point Roll of Victory (ROV) and junior Angus shows. No late entries will be accepted, and exhibitors can sign up online at http://www.nationalwestern.com.
Association events during the NWSS kick off with the Angus Bull Sale Show at 8 a.m. Jan. 13, 2016, and continue through Jan. 16, 2016.
The Marriott City Center Denver will again serve as the headquarter hotel for the week’s events, and participants are encouraged to go online and book their rooms early. For more details on the Angus activities during the NWSS, visit http://www.angus.org.
