Pre-entry Required | Limited to 10 Teams


Four Events: 6 Minute time limit to complete all 4 events

Calf Branding | Steer Doctoring | Trailer Loading | Wild Cow Milking

  • Calf Branding
    • The calf branding will start the scramble. One member will ride into the pen and will rope the designated calf (catch as catch can). No loping. A 10 second penalty will be assessed each time the horse lopes. Two members will wrestle calf, while 4th member will brand calf (DVD on left rib). Calf must stay in the pen and branding iron must be returned to the bucket, before all members may mount and continue competition and move onto the next event.
  • Steer Doctoring
    • There will be three head of cattle in the arena. The team will doctor one of the steers, the team will load one steer and will milk one cow.
    • For the doctoring event, the team will head, and heel one of steers. The team will then tie at least 3 legs of the steer which will need to stay tied for 6 seconds and will put an X on the “doctored” steer. All ropes must be removed except for the pigging string tying the steer.

  • Trailer Loading
    • For the Trailer Loading, one of the steers must be loaded in the trailer by whatever means necessary. All of the gates will be closed on the trailer to begin; there will be no setting of the gate prior to the time starting. Once the steer is in the trailer the ropes must be removed and the gates must be closed and latched.
  • Wild Cow Milking
    • For the milking event, the team can head and heel the horned cow or head and mug the cow to milk her. Once the cow is milked, the bottle will need to be taken to one of the judges to pour the milk out. There must be enough milk in the bottle to pour out and not just drops come out. The bottle to gather the milk in will be placed by the branding bucket.
  • There will be NO roughing of the animals and the Judge’s decision is FINAL. Any intentional roughing of the animals or horses will result in the team having a NO TIME. Everyone is hand enough to recognize roughing of animals.
  • The main intent of this Ranch Rodeo is to have fun for the day!
