A large crowd from across the states and four foreign countries witnessed this first Mile High Wagyu Experience. After a very successful Wagyu show at the National Western grounds, everyone was ready for the fabulous AWA and Mile High Experience reception featuring many dishes highlighted by Wagyu beef donated by many of the Wagyu breeders throughout the country. The lots sold to WA, OR, TX, CO, NE, IN, CA, KS, MT, SC, FL and Germany. The consignors went all out in their presentation and quality. A great job done by all involved.
