UW Block and Bridle

University of Wyoming's Block and Bridle club is an organization for students that are interested in animal agriculture. This club provides hands on experience to gain industry knowledge and make new connections. Students are passionate about advocating for the livestock industry and put on several large events. 


Meeting Times 

Block and Bridle meet every other Monday evening at 6:00pm in Animal Science room 103. 


Upcoming Events and Club Activites 

307 Elite Sale: The school farm has a unique swine unit with some of the best sows in the country. Our block and bridle club helps with the spring show pig sale by working with sale pigs. We will castrate vaccinate and wean piglets. Then each club member will help clip, wash, and take pictures of their assigned pig to market. 


Meat processing: Club gets hands on experience in the meat lab by harvesting and processing the school's pigs. Previously the club had made their own sausage and cooked the product afterwards. 


Beef Expo: Club puts on a cattle show to help with fundraising. This jack pot show is an awesome experience to see top end cattle and work with producers. The club helps run this large event by selecting judges, taking entry forms, and helping in the showring. 


NWSS Catch A Calf: Block and Bridle halter breaks all calves in the catch a calf program for the National Western Stock Show. This is a great opportunity to get hands on experience with working cattle. This past year the club halter broke 50 steers and was also provided with an  educational experience in PAP testing.
