Steer-A-Year Program

The Steer-A-Year program has a long history at the University of Wyoming and is a great way for the AG community to get  involved with Wyoming Athletics. When a donor allocates their annual gift to the Steer-A-Year program, the money goes directly to scholarships for UW student-athletes who graduated from a Wyoming high school, the UW Rodeo team and to the UW Animal Science judging team.

By donating a physical steer, contributing $750 cash, or picking up steers for gift-in-kind, your contribution will provide you a membership at that particular gift’s level in the Cowboy Joe Club, special recognition on the Steer-A-Year stadium sign, a Steer-A-Year hat and many other unique Steer-A-Year membership benefits. Please remember, you must specify on your renewal that you would like your gift to be allocated to the Steer-A-Year program and you must pledge a steer.

All proceeds support in-state Wyoming athletic scholarships & the UW Rodeo &  Livestock Judging Teams!
