About the Western Bison Association
The Western Bison Association was founded in 1998 for the bison producers of the Western United States that are dedicated to preserving the American Bison through marketing, ranching, research, and education. We sponsor the Wild West Buffalo Stampede Show and Sale that is held annually on the first Saturday of December in Ogden, Utah at the Golden Spike Event Center. Each Stampede features our show and sale with live animals being judged and sold from all western states. We have our annual meeting, educational forums, and speakers preceding the show and sale, beginning on the previous Thursday. The WBA meets during the National Bison Association's winter conference held in Denver at the National Western Livestock Show each January and in the spring of each year at a host ranch and location that rotates from year to year. Watch our message board for upcoming dates to remember.
