The Romagnola cattle breed, which dates back to fourth century Italy, will make its first appearance at the upcoming 96th anniversary National Western Stock Show. A total of 19 breeds will be represented at the annual "super bowl" of cattle shows.

Other breed associations conducting 2002 shows at the National Western are Angus, Braunvieh, Charolais, Chianina, Gelbvieh, Hereford, Highland, Limousin, Longhorn, Lowline, Maine-Anjou, Miniature Hereford, Red Angus, Salers, Shorthorn, Simmental, South Devon and Tarentaise.

All the breeds, except Chianina, Longhorn, Miniature Hereford, Ramagnola and Tarentaise, also will hold auction sales.

Shows and sales are again scheduled for Bison and Yak, while Elk will conduct a sale only.
