i'd say keep the national western out of denver until they balance narratives to be more friendly to all instead of just one narrative.


the left is about choice, but in reality, all they do is eliminate it.

Cattleman's Congress has already scheduled their next show to overlap with the National Western's dates. Oklahoma has committed to supporting the show and claimed it brought in something crazy like 40 million dollars to their economy. A choice now exists, so people will be able to speak with their dollars.

I believe it was the Hereford association who might have threatened to pull out of the National Western all together.
I wholeheartedly agree. Personally, I'd rather be in Oklahoma than Denver in January, and if they want to be more ag-friendly then that's even more incentive to switch.

     I live here in this rapidly trending anti-ag state. It breaks my heart what they are doing to us here. I dont understand why Cattlemans had to overlap the NWSS dates. Im all for an all cattle major just do it at another time.
     My plea to all of you is to jump aboard on our fight to stop this anti animal agricultural movement. Its coming after all of us. My feeling about NWSS is its more then the time to come to Denver and show the world what great stewards of the land and animals in our care. The way to beat these actions is to pull together and show the liberal voters what great people are in this industry.
     Just remember it could be your state next.

Thanks for listening

The "liberal voters" will not see, they will not listen.

My understanding is that annual horse shows have booked the OKC facility for years and the OKC replacement last year was held on the only open dates then and for any future shows. NWSS was asked to flip the 2nd week to the first to make it where the main breeds could MAKE BOTH but they refused. IMO a year without cattle and people might change this and make OKC, NWSS and FT WORTH a promotable cattleman's January big 3. All of the breed sales did better, some from at least 10 to zero PO's and much better averages, in OKC which I attribute to the big Oklahoma and Texas cattle numbers along with large dominant junior programs. NWSS changed thru time from being a place where every rancher in the west went to buy cattle to an event where the big breeders go to promote the sales they have all winter and spring by showing on the hill and displaying in the nostalgic yards (now torn down) what they have to sell. You couldn't beat the atmosphere of the display bull alley outside the yard bar and sale arena which will be hard to duplicate. NWSS sent a we're back see all the great new stuff we're offering letter to all past exhibitors this week that seemed like window dressing to me when all they have to do is flip their weeks, live up to more than is in their letter and move forward.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. A decision has been made on the recognition of national shows for January 2022.

The American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors met this week during their spring board meeting to make a decision about recognition levels of the Cattlemens Congress in Oklahoma City, Okla. and National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in Denver, Colo. The AHA Board voted to host the 2022 National Show and National Hereford Sale during the Cattlemens Congress in Oklahoma City.

The shows and exhibitor surveys were all taken into consideration during this decision. It was decided that Cattlemens Congress in Oklahoma City will host the 2022 National Show and National Hereford Sale, junior show and pen show.

Following Cattlemens Congress, AHA will recognize the NWSS as a Regional Point Show. The AHA will share more information and schedules with its membership and interested parties once both venues have been notified and establish final changes.

competition is a good thing.


hotel/restaurant, gas, parking, etc., and tax revenue seems to not be needed in colorado.
