Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: S.D.’s oldest rodeo, bull bash for youth, McLaury clinic, youth rodeos, ranch broncs

It’s sure been some nice weather. Folks are getting some hay cut at last. Some are just cleaning up hail damaged hay so the second round can grow correctly, and I sure feel for them. All that expense with a low quality feed as a result. One guy I know had his grain crop so completely destroyed that he drilled in over the top of it to make a crop of some sort.

The Oldest Rodeo in S.D. will be the Interior Frontier Days rodeo in the beautiful badlands at Interior, S.D. It’s sanctioned and open to the world, which is pretty rare these days. Entries opened June 24, so go to http://www.midwestrodeoentries.com to get in.
