Currently we have a carved longhorn skull and a Wyoming hunting trip for the live auction. Silent Auction items to date include jewelry and homemade goods. Auction items can be brought at check-in.
Breeder Memorial
   Before the Trophy Steer Show we take the opportunity to celebrate breeders who have moved on to greener pastures. This is an extremely touching and moving ceremony. 
Awards Ceremony
   Just 30 minutes after the conclusion of the show on Saturday we will meet in the Coliseum foyer and recognize our Hall of Fame exhibitors. 
Gold Merit
   Designed to recognize skills outside of the show ring, participants compete in record keeping and speech giving. Each age category winner receives a belt buckle. For more information, click on the TLBT tab at www.TLBAA.org

Livestock Judging
   Showing cattle can be tough, hard and so fun. But do you have what it takes to be on the other side, the Judge? Participate in our 3 class judging contest. You will get the opportunity to evaluate heifers, bulls and steers. The livestock judging contest will be in Cattle Barn 2 at 3 p.m. on Wednesday. 

Quiz Bowl
   Test your knowledge and see how you rank among your peers. Here's a hint, we have been publishing some of the questions on the TLBT Page in the TRAILS Magazine.
