Antler Ranch Rodeo to benefit North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation

Farm Forum

Rodeo enthusiasts will have a chance to support the future of the beef industry at the annual Antler Outlaws Ranch Rodeo at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 19, at the Antler Memorial Park Arena near Antler, N.D. Sixteen teams will be competing for buckles and prizes.

Proceeds benefit the North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation, a charitable organization dedicated to supporting the state’s beef industry through scholarship, leadership, promotion, research and building objectives. Among its recent projects, the Stockmen’s Foundation distributed nearly $155,000 in relief to ranchers who suffered catastrophic losses in winter storm Atlas.

The Antler Outlaws Ranch Rodeo is part of the Mouse River Ranch Rodeo series and is the first activity in a weekend-long event, which includes a trail ride, breakfast, noon meal, 6 p.m. steak supper, 8 p.m. ranch rodeo and dance on Saturday, Sept. 20, and a breakfast, short ride and 2 p.m. ranch rodeo on Sunday, Sept. 21.

Camping spots and electric hookups are available on a first-come, first-serve, basis.
