Who provides the rodeo livestock?
The Harry Vold Rodeo Company of Fowler, Colorado will be providing the livestock and producing our rodeo for the 44th consecutive year. Harry, inducted into ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 1994, is not only an outstanding producer with world-class livestock, he is a real gentleman and gentle man. More than “just” a producer, we think of Harry, Karen, Kirsten the entire Vold clan and traveling family as our own family.
Harry’s daughter Kirsten took over the business in 1998. Kirsten now spends more than 200 days each year on the rodeo trail and oversees what is undeniably the leading rodeo stock company in the industry today. A genuine love of animals is the driving force behind the young woman. Kirsten is a veteran in the industry and her family’s company sets the standard by which all others are measured. Whether at the rodeo or the ranch, Kirsten’s horses are her life and she is committed to breeding and raising them herself.
