The show hosts nearly 20 breeds of cattle during its 16-day run. In addition, the National Western hosts: Prospect Steer and Heifer Shows, Fed Beef Contest, Commercial Heifer Show, Colorado Cattlemen's Association Producer's Show and FFA Beef Heifer Wrangle.

The National Western Stock Show is held every January at the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado. First held in 1906, it is the world's largest stock show by number of animals and offers the world’s only carload and pen cattle show in the historic Denver Union Stockyards.

The stock show is governed by the Western Stock Show Association, which states it is produced in an effort to forward the association's mission: "To preserve the western lifestyle by providing a showcase for the agricultural industry through emphasis on education, genetic development, innovative technology and offering the world's largest agricultural marketing opportunities."

Proceeds from the National Western Stock Show go to the National Western Scholarship Trust. The Trust awards 64 scholarships annually to students studying agriculture and medicine to practice in rural areas at colleges and universities in Colorado and Wyoming.
