1st Annual Cattledog Trials

The question is… If you were already one of the nation’s premier livestock shows, drawing some of the top competitors from over 33 states, what would be your next step? We agree… It’s time to add a cattledog trial to the mix!

Our annual tradition (since 1948) to host the largest livestock show in the Southwest will now also host cattledog trials sanctioned by the National Cattledog Association.

December 30 & 31

Open to the first 30 Open dogs and 20 Nursery dogs.
