Don’t expect to see rodeo events like bull riding or steer wrestling at the Texas Ranch Roundup in Wichita Falls. It’s not just about sport; instead, the 38th annual event, Aug. 17-18, will simulate events at the cattle roundups of the late 1800s and early 1900s, showcasing the hard work of true cowboys at 10 Texas ranches selected to participate because of their rich, long histories. Competitive events reflect activities that routinely take place at ranches, such as calf doctoring, bronc riding, wild cow milking, team penning, and branding—plus a chuckwagon cooking contest, and a trade show featuring bits, spurs, and Western collectibles.
