Catchin' Calves

Unlike any other calf scramble program, USC is a one-day tournament in which competitors catch calves in hopes of advancing to the next round. 4th and 5th place participants in each preliminary round will receive $1,000. An additional $94,000 will be divided among the top boys and girls competitors who make it to the finals in the Rodeo Arena, with one boy and one girl receiving a first-place prize amount of $6,000 and the title of Ultimate Scramble Champion. With the USC certificates, winners can purchase an animal of their choice: market steer, market lamb, market goat, market barrow, or breeding heifer to bring to the next year’s show.

The Ultimate Scramble Championship will take place on Saturday, March 19, 2022.

2022 Entries are FULL and alternates are being accepted.
