Governor's Cattlemen's Ball
The Arizona National Livestock Show and the Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association have partnered with Governor Doug Ducey to bring attendees together from across the state. Their efforts will bring business sectors of the Arizona agricultural industry together for a spectacular night of entertainment and fundraising.
Select sponsors will participate in a VIP meet and greet with the Honorable Governor Jan Brewer. Attendees will enjoy a delicious steak dinner, participate in a live auction, and kick up their heels to the Western Fusion Band playing on the Sanderson Ford Country Stage. More than 400 of Arizona’s finest of cattlemen and women, stock show supporters, lobbyists, attorneys, and political experts are estimated to attend and take the opportunity to wear their best boots and suits for the occasion.
The celebration will benefit the Arizona National Livestock Show, Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association, and Governor Ducey's charity of choice. The three parties are mutually focused on funding youth agricultural scholarships, and are thrilled to bolster support for the future of agriculture.
Arizona National Livestock Show
The Arizona National Livestock Show is the largest livestock show in the Southwest, and has been an annual Phoenix tradition since 1948. Exhibitors travel from more than 25 states for the annual affair, bringing nearly 1,700 head of the nation’s best cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and swine for competition. Competition in the show ring will be fierce across the species, as only the Grand Champions and Reserve Grand Champions in the respective breed divisions will sell in the Sale of Champions.
The Arizona National Livestock Show is proud to serve the agricultural producers by growing the future through the promotion of agriculture, community partnerships, western heritage, youth development and education.
