National Western Stock Show Collectors’ Badge – Enduring Historic Times
The National Western Stock Show has been a Denver institution since 1906. For 16 days every January, it’s the fabric of our state and a celebration of our western roots. Then a pandemic hit - marking only the second time in history that the doors to the National Western Stock Show would not open in January. The other year was 1915 when hoof and mouth disease threatened livestock herds across the United States. During that outbreak, the association voted to cancel the Stock Show for the safety of all livestock, the industry, and ranchers across the U.S. Many people thought, “how will the show ever survive?”. Through those adversities and 105 years later, the National Western Stock Show has become the “Super Bowl of livestock shows” hosting 700,000 guests in just sixteen days. They overcame in 1915 and we will overcome in 2021. Add this limited-edition collectors’ piece to your NWSS badge collection and show your support for Stock Show.
