Info for the kids' calf scramble:
Calf Scramble is a great way for the kids to get up close and personal with some of the fuzzy little farm animals!
There are two age groups: 6-9 and 10-12. Ribbons are placed on the tails of three calves and the kids and the calves are turned loose. The first three participants to return the ribbon to the clown wins a cash prize.
The rodeo is not responsible for lost boots, flip flops, hats or anything stepped in other than arena dirt!
