The Whitham family has stepped up for Denver and the West yet again, this time with a $1 million donation to the Honoring the Legacy campaign for the new National Western Center.
The Whitham family has been part of the Stock Show for almost 70 years: showing livestock, buying and selling breeding stock, meeting with cattle nutritionists and animal-health experts, and engaging in various other Stock Show activities that are so familiar to agricultural producers from across the West.
“Our cow-calf operations, yearling grazing program, commercial finishing operation, and farming programs all benefited from the information and best-practice exchanges that took place in and around the National Western,” Barth said.
Barth says he hopes the Whitham family’s gift sets an example for others.
“As I’ve watched the plans for the National Western Center take shape over these past few years, I’ve been more and more convinced that contributions to the campaign equate to investments in Denver, the state of Colorado, the West, and agriculture in general,” Barth said. “I’m hoping others join us in making the vision a reality.”
