January 21, 2023: The 2023 Gold Trophy Show and Sale will take place at the newly renovated National Western Stock Show complex in Denver. The Gold Trophy Show and Sale (GTSS) is the premier bison auction in the U.S. For nearly 40 years, bison producers have brought their best bison stock to Denver’s National Western Stock Show to show and sell their animals. The sale features high quality, judged breeding stock as well as top-notch production animals that are sure to perform back at the ranch.
We hope you can join the NBA at the new and improved National Western Stock Show for our annual breeding stock show and sale, which features some of the best breeding stock and genetics in the bison business.
Based on recent live auction results, quality is clearly being rewarded at this year's sales and breeding animals are overall bringing good money. For over forty years, the GTSS has provided a quality auction service for both buyers and sellers. This year's judges are longtime bison expert producers, Les Kroeger - Hanley, SK and Dr. Gerald Parsons - Stratford, OK who bring decades of experience working with top-notch breeding animals and judging. Don't miss out on this great opportunity, consign to 2023 GTSS!
Once again, Buffaloheard Productions will be producing a full color catalog for the event with advertising space available for anyone interested. Advertising does not necessarily have to be associated with the GTSS and presents a great opportunity to reach an engaged audience! Advertisements can be full color or black/white and pricing and availability are shown here. The catalog will be available to attendees at the NBA Winter Conference as well as the live Gold Trophy Show and Sale. Additionally, it will be posted online on the NBA website for viewing and downloading in advance of the conference and auction. Advertisements are sold on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact Karen at (605) 381-3738 or email@example.com to discuss your options.
Per the GTSS Rules and Regulations, "The NBA acts only as an agent and assumes no responsibility in the event of injury or death to any animal or for any discrepancy between the buyer and the consignor."
