Cattle Raisers Seeking Teams for Chisholm Trail Ranch Rodeo
The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) is accepting entries for the first ever Chisholm Trail Ranch Rodeo scheduled for Feb. 7 and 8 in conjunction with the Oklahoma Horse Fair. The two-night event will take place at the Stephens County Fair and Exposition Center in Duncan, Okla.
Twelve teams from Texas and 12 teams from Oklahoma will compete against each other. Half of the entry spots are reserved for teams with full-time ranch employees. The other half are reserved for teams made up of independent individuals.
“This will be a fun and competitive rodeo where teams from both states will compete against each other,” said Van Baize, a North Texas rancher and member of the TSCRA association promotion committee. “Not only will teams get to showcase their horsemanship and cattle handling talents, but the winners will have some pretty big bragging rights.”
The rodeo is open to the public. Tickets will be sold at the door.
All competing participants must be a TSCRA member or employed by a TSCRA member. Entry fees, applications and rules can be found at www.tscra.org/ranchrodeo.
