CSU and the Stock Show

Colorado State University has a long and storied connection to the National Western Stock Show, one of Denver's and the Rocky Mountain West's most anticipated annual traditions.

Throughout the years, CSU students and faculty have provided expertise in animal science, veterinary care, judging, education, 4-H and several other programs.

Today, the partnership between the National Western Stock Show and Colorado State remains strong. The National Western Stock Show is the largest individual scholarship donor in the College of Agricultural Sciences. In 2010-11, the NWSS awarded 27 scholarships to CSU agriculture students.

The National Western Stock Show continues through Jan. 23 at the National Western Complex, 4655 Humboldt St., Denver.
