With the National Western Stock Show in Denver postponed for a year, the National Bison Association has teamed up with the Dakota Territory Buffalo Association to plan its annual live bison show and sale, along with its winter membership meeting for Feb. 18 to 20, 2021 in Rapid City, South Dakota.
The annual Gold Trophy Show and Sale conducted by the bison association is recognized as the leading showcase for quality bison breeding stock in the U.S. Similarly, the DTBA’s performance tested “Girlz Gone Wild” yearling heifer competition provides ranchers with the opportunity to purchase young animals with proven quality. The two events will be combined into one simulcast auction on Feb. 20. Judging for the two events will take place the day before.
The national association and its regional counterpart have also collaborated to organize a joint conference with individual association membership meetings. That event is scheduled at the Ramkota Inn in Rapid City for February 19 to 20.
Matheson noted, “We are planning the meeting in a manner that will allow everyone to participate safely in person, or to log on and participate online.”
He said that details for the Show and Sale, and the Winter Conference are being posted on the bison association website, www.bisoncentral.com, as they are finalized.
