Yee-haw!The 18th annual La Salle County Ranch Rodeo is set to take place Sunday, March 13, 2005 at the American Legion Arena in Cotulla, Texas at 2:00 p.m.  Described as the "roughest and rowdiest ranch rodeo south of the Frio River", the La Salle County Ranch Rodeo attracts teams from area ranches who come together to compete in various rodeo events for cash and prizes.

Entry is by invitation only and teams are composed of five members.  Trophy buckles are awarded to the Grand Champion team and added money is awarded to the first three places.

 Ranch Rodeo Events
Wild Hog Sacking
Two men catch a hog and place it in a tow sack.  A cowboy on horseback then takes the sack and rides to the pen set up at the other end of the arena, hands the tow sack to the other waiting team members, who release the hog into the pen.
 
Steer Roping and Tying
Five mounted cowboys work together to rope a steer and lay it on its side.  The team then must cross-tie the steer's legs.
 
Steer Roping and Branding
Four mounted cowboys start behind the designated line.  The clock starts when the steer is released from the chute.  The cowboys on horseback head and heel the steer and lay it on either side.  From there, the cowboy on foot "brands" the steer on its ribs.
 
Wild Hog Roping and Tying
Hog hunting is a favorite pastime of many in the South Texas brush country.  Armed with only a rope (instead of a gun and dogs), a cowboy might be a little nervous about getting up close and personal with an angry wild hog.  The team starts in a pickup behind the arena gate.  One man opens the gate to let the pickup through and hops back in.  As the team drives towards the hog, they must rope it in any way they can.  Once roped, the team must then cross-tie the hog's legs and load it into the back of the pickup.
 
Wild Cow Milking
Teams head and heel a cow, then convince the cow to put some milk in a bottle.  Once some milk is obtained, the runner for the team must carry the bottle of milk across the designated line.

Chairmen for the Ranch Rodeo are Leslie Kinsel and Jack Van Cleve.
