The National Bison Association announces that the National Bison Winter Conference will take place in Denver, Colorado, Jan. 20 to 23, 2021, and at the same time, NBA’s Gold Trophy Show and Sale (GTSS) will be held.

The conference is hosted at the Denver Renaissance Hotel, Stapleton, which is now taking reservations. Please save the date and “plan to join us for this exciting, fun and informative conference.”

The Gold Trophy (GTSS) is considered the premier bison auction in the US. 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 mission of the Gold Trophy Show and Sale is to create an environment where producers can compete to establish the value of their bison in the current marketplace,” according to the NBA news release.

“The sale features high quality, judged breeding stock as well as top-notch production animals that are sure to perform back at the ranch.

“The GTSS also features its popular Market Class auction, in which the public can come and bid on top quality, all natural bison carcasses to be processed into packaged meat to your specifications.”

“Animals arrive on Tuesday, Jan. 19th and 20th, are judged on the 21st and 22nd, then sold on Saturday the 23rd.

“The conference is hosted at the Renaissance – Stapleton, now taking reservations. Save the date and plan to join the NBA for this “exciting, fun and informative conference.”

“Please note important dates below and reference the 2019 catalog for an overview of health requirements, etc. that need to be met to legally unload animals at the National Western Stock Show.

“Please note, GTSS will have class caps in place again for the yearling bull (20) and 2 year old bull (14) classes. Consignors are permitted to enter up to two animals in each class, however for these classes, one will be consigned and the 2nd will be placed on a waiting list as to allow many consignors the chance to consign at least one bull in these two capped classes.

“After consignments have closed, those bulls to be added to fill the class will be offered to those who consigned two animals on a first come first serve basis.”
