Gold Trophy Show & Sale
2014 Gold Trophy Show and Sale
The Gold Trophy Show and Sale (GTSS), now in its 34th year of operation, is the premier bison auction in the U.S. For over 30 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. 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 meat to your specifications.
