Handling the Ranch: Twelve teams of four competed in the annual Ranch Rodeo Sept. 29 at the Calnash Ag Event Centre that included five separate timed events that simulated actual work on a ranch. The cattle doctoring event saw teams separate and rope a steer, perform two simple tasks then release it, which was followed by cattle sorting of specific cattle in order. Cattle branding along with cattle loading and a wild saddle horse race were also featured. Top spot for the day went to Parkview Land and Cattle’s team of Mike and Austin Schmidt, Tony Van Der Brink and Josh Felker. Photos by Jordie Dwyer
