KUSA - Boots and business come together this time of year for the National Western Stock Show.

This is the 108th edition of the National Western Stock Show, and organizers expect it will draw attendance during its run of more than 600,000 people.

The show is considered the Super Bowl of stock shows, and it's big business for the agriculture industry across the country and internationally as well. Visitors from 38 countries and 42 states are expected to show up this year.

More than 12,000 head of livestock enter the show every year, and there's a waiting list to get in because of a lack of space.

The National Western results in more than $100 million in economic impact to the metro area ever year.

The NWSS runs from Jan. 11 until 26. Find out more on their website: http://www.nationalwestern.com/.
