The National Western Stock Show runs Jan. 9 to 24, featuring 42 ticketed events in 2010, including 23 action-packed PRCA rodeos and three thrill-a-minute PBR Denver Chute-Outs.
The World's Most Useful Livestock Show continues into its 103rd edition with 20 cattle breed shows. But what is likely to be the most important development at the show will occur through the Junior Market Show.
"We are industry leaders in animal testing with new policies in place for the 2010 National Western Junior Market Auction of Champions," said Patrick Grant, NWSS president and CEO. "Every single junior market sale animal will be drug tested and non-sale junior market animals will be randomly drug tested."
Under these new rules the National Western reserves the right to question the alteration of any animal's physical or physiological structure. As a condition of participation in the National Western Stock Show, the participant agrees to submit to the Stock Show, at their discretion, any animal so entered for immediate testing. Tests may include, but not be limited to blood, tissue and urine.
