Local events include local barrels for riders 16 years of age and under, and the popular mutton bustin’ for children six years of age and under. Helmets are required for all riders.
The stock contractor is JC & Company Rodeo Contractors and is assured to provide top quality stock for rodeo fans’ entertainment.
Admission at the gate is $15 for teens and adults, $5 for children six years of age and under, while children five years of age are admitted free with a parent.
Rodeo fans are being asked to support the Ag Society’s half-a-beef and half-a-pork raffles. The winners will be drawn after the show on April 29. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the rodeo.
The society thanks Siegfried Holleis for donating the beef and Johnny’s Sausage for donating the pork.
