About BKOC

Now in it’s 21st year, the Badger Kick-Off Classic is Wisconsin’s premier prospect steer and heifer show. Held on the first weekend of December each year at the Alliant Energy Center, the show drew over 820 entries from several states in 2014 and continues to grow.

The show is operated entirely by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Saddle & Sirloin Club as one of its primary fundraisers. Each year, this group of students volunteer many hours to make BKOC a success. The club is assisted by advisors Terry Jobsis and Bernie O’Rourke, as well as the Department of Animal Sciences at UW-Madison.

The event would not take place without the exceptional support of many sponsors. If you’re interested in joining these businesses and individuals in supporting Wisconsin’s livestock industry and Saddle & Sirloin, check out our sponsorship opportunities or contact our show chairs listed below. Be sure to thank and support all of our sponsors when you see them!
