After nearly 20 years of providing rough stock for rodeos all over the region, Byron Juma was ready to take life a little easier. Earlier this spring, the Torrington, WY stock contractor held a herd reduction sale. “We sold about 60 horses, 55 bulls, and 75 rodeo-bred cows,” he explained.

Despite the sale, Juma is far from being out of the stock contracting business. In fact, Juma feels some of his best buckers may be yet to come. “I kept my three- and two-year-old bulls, and my yearling bulls,” he said. “So, I still have close to 100 head of bulls. We also kept the heifer calves out of the cows, so I still have about 30 heifers that are rodeo-bred.”

Juma said he sold most of his bucking horses and turned over a lot of the bucking horse operation to his pickup man, Wayne Larsen of Chugwater. “Wayne is raising bucking horses and has quite a few bucking horses already, so I have put him in charge of that. We are working together to use my bulls and some of Wayne’s horses and some of my horses to cover the rodeos we contract for now,” he said.
