MITCHELL – The Scotts Bluff County Ag Society announces the annual fair rodeo will again be sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA).

As a kick-off to the Scotts Bluff County Fair the PRCA rodeo will be held on July 26 and 27,starting at 7:30 p.m. both nights at the Scotts Bluff County Fairgrounds. Two-time PRCA Stock Contractor of the Year, Colorado-based Cervi Rodeo Company, will provide the livestock for the rodeo.

The animals involved in PRCA-sanctioned events are afforded proper care and treatment through a comprehensive, award-winning animal welfare program and the enforcement of animal-related rules and regulations.

Professional cowboys will compete in six events, including saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, bull riding, tie-down roping, team roping, and steer wrestling. These events are fully approved and sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and will feature top cowboys from the Prairie Circuit competing for thousands of dollars in prize money.

Sanctioned by the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association, women competitors will show their skills in the WPRA Barrel Race.
In addition to top competitors, young cowboys and cowgirls will be able to participate in the tiny tots boot scramble, kids’ calf scramble and mutton bustin.

Those interested should be at the rodeo by 7:30 each night. Mutton busters will be from ages 5-8 and a parent or legal guardian must register and sign a waiver prior to 7:30 p.m. There is a limited number of mutton bustin spots available. Prizes will be awarded for all winners.

This year there will be a new clown act at the Mitchell rodeo. During his performances, Scot Allerdings provides several means of high quality family entertainment. From his family friendly comedy to new exciting acts, Scot will keep the crowd entertained throughout the event. Scot loves to work with the youth and will do whatever he can to help promote the sport of rodeo, in a positive fashion.

Rodeo fans are encouraged to contact the Scotts Bluff County Fairgrounds for rodeo tickets. Please call (308) 623-1828 for more information.
