2017 will mark the 50th year of the NILE Stockshow and rodeo. The organization's mission is to embrace and preserve the western way of life. The NILE has expanded its opportunity to continue this mission in many ways. In 2008, the NILE purchased the Montana Agri-Trade Exposition, or Mate Show. With over 125,000 square feet of exhibit space and over 14,000 attendees each year, the MATE Show and Home & Health Expo is the largest agricultural trade show event in Montana.
The MATE Show and Home and Health Expo, along with other NILE events, could not go on without the hard work of volunteers, the dedication of exhibitors, the support from a community and state and finally their friends that attend NILE events throughout the year. The NILE and MATE crew would like to salute you for your role in preserving and embracing the western way of life. Here’s to the next 50 years.

Heroes and Horses inspires veterans to move beyond the difficulties experienced from years of war, towards a life of restoration and hope, with the use of horses.
