The Gold Trophy Show and Sale (GTSS) is the premier bison auction in the U.S. For nearly 40 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 back at the ranch. 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 packaged meat to your specifications.
