What's that smell? National Western Stock Show returns to Denver [photos]

For over a century, Denver has hosted one of the largest livestock shows in the world—the National Western Stock Show. The event is the largest trade show in Colorado, a state where 75% of the agricultural economy is dominated by livestock and related products. This week the event returned, bringing more than 15,000 horses, cows, sheep, pigs and even llamas to the city.

On Tuesday crowds lined up on 17th Street "the Wall Street of the West," to watch the Stock Show’s kickoff parade. Grand Marshall Todd Helton of the Colorado Rockies was there, but he was largely upstaged by a herd of longhorn cattle, tractors doing donuts in the intersection, and another herd of municipal street sweepers that followed the procession, eliminating the eliminations of the animals that preceded them.
