Hi everybody it’s time for your Lane and Livestock Report here on the Ag Information Network of the West-I’m Russell Nemetz.

One of our region’s premiere stock shows is just around the corner. The NILE Stock Show is October 14-21 in Billings, MT at the Metra Park. Jennifer Boka is the NILE’s general manager and says there’s a lot planned for this year which also happens to be the NILE’s 50th Anniversary.

“We have grown to a full week of cattle shows. We run from Sunday to Saturday with 14 breed shows. I was looking at some numbers here recently and noticed that since 2012, our livestock numbers have grown 55% which is very rare in the stock show industry now.”

The sport of rodeo will also be a big draw again at the 2017 NILE; especially the ranch rodeo.

“The ranch rodeo has been a part of the NILE since 2007, making this year its tenth anniversary. 2017 is also the 50th anniversary of the NILE stock show and rodeo. Teams are competing for thousands of dollars in prize money, as well as buckles from Montana Silversmiths. The winning team also earns a spot at the Western States Ranch Rodeo Association (WSRRA) Finals in Winnemuca, Nevada. Contestants are also vying for custom made spurs for riding the Top Horse, and a saddle made by Connolly Saddlery for the Top Hand.
