“Each year the PRCA recognizes a veterinarian who has volunteered his or her time on behalf of rodeo livestock,” said Cindy Schonholtz, director of industry outreach. “These individuals provide the highest level of veterinary care to the livestock involved in the sport of rodeo. The PRCA Veterinarian of the Year program enables the sport to give back to these great individuals and show them how much we appreciate the job they do. We encourage PRCA members to help us tell the stories of these dedicated veterinarians by nominating them for this prestigious award.”
