Steer-A-Year

Steer a Year
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. By donating a physical steer, contributing $1,000 cash, or transporting steers for gift-in-kind, your contribution will earn you a membership at that particular gift level in the Cowboy Joe Club, special recognition on Stadium sign, special hat and many other unique membership benefits. Remember, you must specify on your renewal that you would like your gift to be allocated to the Steer-A-Year program by June 30th for eligible Cowboy Joe Membership.
