The Commercial Heifer Show at the National Western Stock Show has been held for over 100 years. The Commercial Heifer Show and Sale was started and based around the commercial cattlemen who came to the yards to purchase commercial bulls and commercial heifers for their operation.
Once the popularity of spring bull sales grew, less cattlemen came to the National Western to purchase their bulls, but the commercial heifer show tradition was able to stay alive.
Today, the commercial heifer show is supported and held in conjunction with the Colorado Cattlemen’s Convention. With this support, cattlemen can attend the convention and enjoy the commercial heifer show and sale during their trip.
