Adams Ranch State Qualifying Genuine Ranch Rodeo
Watch authentic cowboys working cattle like they do “on the ranch” at the 8th annual Adams Ranch State Qualifying Genuine Ranch Rodeo, Saturday, March 31st at the St. Lucie County Fairgrounds.
Bronc ridin’, wild cow decoratin’, cow gatherin’, trailer loadin’, and ranch sortin’ are all activities commonly found on a working cattle ranch, but on April 1st, teams of cowboys, and cowgirls, from across Florida will compete to see who can do it the best.
“Ranch rodeos aren’t like the glamorous events seen on TV; its events are authentic to what real ranch hands do every day in one of the nation’s 11th largest industries,” said event coordinator Bryan Beaty. “The ranch rodeo is a great opportunity for the public to see first-hand the skills and the hard work necessary to manage cattle operations.”
Presented by the St. Lucie County Cattlemen’s Association, in partnership with Adams Ranch, the event will also feature food and fun for all ages. Gates open at noon and rodeo events conclude by 8 p.m.
“Over the last seven years, this rodeo has developed quite the reputation among the ranch rodeo circuit for being high quality and well organized,” Beaty said. “In fact, the winning team from this rodeo has gone on to win at the state ranch rodeo several times.”
Tickets are available at the gate; $10 per person, children 12 and under free with a paid adult. For more information, visit www.adamsranchrodeo.com. A parking lot shuttle will be provided this year.
All proceeds support youth scholarships and agricultural education efforts.
