No matter if you've never been to a ranch rodeo or you're a die-hard fan, the NILE Ranch Rodeo presented by Farstad Oil is wild, Western, and whole lot of fun. The contestants are working cowboys that are out on the ranch every day. They compete for the bragging rights and the chance of added jingle in their pockets.

The events that the teams of four (five if the team has a designated bronc rider) compete in these great events: Ranch Bronc Riding, Wild Cow Milking, Team Branding, Team Doctoring and Team Trailering. The events are supposed to imitate tasks that are done on the ranch. Broncs have to be tamed, mama cows must be out-maneuvered, calves need branding, sick steers need doctored and yearlings have to loaded up. Although the prairies and pastures don't have big screens with instant replay, it's a close representation to what cowhands do on the range.

The Ranch Rodeo at the NILE is a Finals, meaning ranch rodeos from around the region sanction with the NILE and send their winning teams to compete. It's the best of the best vying for the awards and cash. Catch all the ranch rodeo action every summer by attending the sanctioned ranch rodeos and keeping up with who will make to the NILE.

Join us after the rodeo for the Dance in the Dirt. At the conclusion of the awards make your way down to the arena floor for a country concert.

1st place through 4th place: paid 40%, 30%, 20%, 10% of pot
