NBA Gold Trophy Sale

Gold Trophy Show and Sale Now Taking Consignments February 18th - 20th in Rapid City, SD

Consider consigning your superior breeding stock to the Gold Trophy Show and Sale! Due to the cancellation of Denver's 2021 National Western Stock Show, the annual GTSS will be held at the Central States Fairgrounds in Rapid City, SD, in conjunction with Dakota Territory Buffalo Association's (DTBA) performance-tested Girlz Going Wild yearling heifer auction. Under the agreement developed by the NBA and DTBA, GTSS animals would be transported to the fair-grounds on February 18, judged on February 19, and sold on February 20th via simulcast auction at the Ramkota Inn, Rapid City. The NBA event will not include any yearling female entries in order not to conflict with DTBA's heifer sale. Animals from the NBA and DTBA will be housed at the Central States Fairgrounds, but will be sold through a virtual, live-streamed video auction event.

ENTRY DEADLINE: January 20, 2021. Entries for Live Animal must be paid online - postmarked, emailed to, or faxed to the NBA office at (303) 845-9081 by this date.

CLASSES: Two Year Old Bulls
Yearling Bulls
Bull Calves
Two Year Old Bred Heifers
Pen of 2 - Two Year Old Bred Heifers
Heifer Calves Pen of 5 Heifer Calves

ENTRY FEES: All fees, in US funds, must be paid with the entry. Fees are not refundable, unless the animal is not allowed in the show due to space limitations or class cancellations. Consign online at Single Calf Entries, per head - $75 Individual yearlings and 2 year olds - $100 Pen of 2 Two-Year Old Bred Heifers - $175 Pen of Five Heifer Calves - $300 Space is limited so please consign early, or by January 20, 2021 the latest.

ELIGIBILITY: Consignors must be a current Life, Active, or Junior member of the National Bison to enter animals in the Gold Trophy Show and Sale (GTSS). Buyers need not be members of either associations. ENTRY LIMITS: Consignors are limited to two entries per class in both live and market classes, with the exception of the live, single calf classes, where each consignor may have up to three entries per class. The pen of 5 heifer calves class is limited to one entry per consignor. There is a class limit of 20 yearling bulls and 14 two-year old bulls in which one can consign two animals per class, but the 2nd animal will be on a waiting list until the consignment deadline, and then added until the class is full, and will be added on a first come first serve basis. Entries may be reduced at the discretion of the GTSS Committee Chairperson(s) if class sizes become an issue due to pen space. The NBA reserves the right to cancel any class with less than three entries after the entry deadline. If a class is cancelled or entry numbers are reduced, affected consignors will have entry fees refunded.

COMMISSION: A 10% commission is taken off of the live animal sale price, with 9% going to the NBA's general account and 1% contributed to the NBA's Growth Fund program to support promotional efforts in the bison industry. EAR TAGS: GTSS ear tags will be mailed as soon as possible after consignments are received. They are to be placed in the animal's left ear. All other ear tags must be removed, except permanent metal ID tags, EID or RFID tags, NABR (North American Bison Registry) tags, Source Verification (SVP) tags and trichomoniasis tags. One show tag plus any government issued tags. LOAD IN/OUT: The loading facilities are located at 800 San Francisco St, Rapid City, SD 57701. Visit for directions and other details.
