by Wyoming Livestock Roundup

Denver, Colo. – The annual Wyoming Stock Growers Association (WSGA) Wyoming Day celebration was held on Jan. 26, when nearly 50 Wyomingites traveled to Denver, Colo. and the National Western Stock Show. 

Among the attendees, six state legislators, Wyoming State Treasurer Curt Meier, Wyoming State Auditor Kristi Racines, Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction and sponsors joined WSGA members in a full-day event, which included NWSS tours, lunch a rodeo and more. 

After traveling to Denver, attendees were treated to a luncheon at the National Western Club before touring stock show. 

Members enjoyed the 2019 Wyoming Day Rodeo, where WSGA leadership and Wyoming’s elected officials were escorted around the arena in the National Western coach and wagon.

Olivia Sanchez, WSGA communications, publications and programs director, says, “WSGA was joined by three of Wyoming’s elected officials to celebrate Wyoming Day at the rodeo. Those individuals were introduced to the crowd while riding in a horse-drawn carriage around the arena.”

Following the rodeo, Wyoming Day attendees returned to Cheyenne, stopping in Loveland, Colo. for dinner and the opportunity for continued conversation.

She adds, “It was a really nice event with a great group of WSGA members.”
