5th Annual Family Ranch Rodeo Fest

This event will give folks a glimpse into the real day-to-day lives of ranch cowboys and cowgirls as well as their outstanding character. Differing from a professional rodeo, the ranch rodeo features tasks that ranch hands regularly encounter, such as rounding up cattle for doctoring and loading them for transport. Ten teams will compete for prize money, buckles, and other awards. To reflect the very real makeup of many ranching families, the rules call for at least one of the four team members to be a female or a youth under the age of 17. The Family Ranch Rodeo Fest will feature fun for the entire family, including mutton busting, goat roping, kids’ activities, a silent and online auction, food and refreshments, and live music with the Tailgaters. Proceeds from the event support KCYAEC, home to more than 400 4-H, FFA, and Jr. Livestock members who participate in agriculture and equestrian activities, competitions, and educational enterprises.
