WHEATLAND — The Independent Cattlemen of Wyoming, or ICOW, is hosting a ranch rodeo in Wheatland.

Organizers said this unique western tradition will be at the Platte County Fairgrounds starting at 11 a.m. Aug. 11. The rodeo will be comprised of four-person teams, with an entry fee of $300 per team. The top-three places will receive prize money. For entries or more information, call 307-340-0908 or 307-340-0992.

In addition to the rodeo, ICOW is supporting the national organization, RCALF, by having tickets available for a 2018 Polaris Ranger (Crew XT 1000) raffle. For those who are not familiar with model numbers, organizers aid it is a four-person, really nice side-by-side ranch or recreational vehicle. RCALF will draw the winners at its national convention on Aug. 25, in Rapid City, South Dakota. Prizes down to fourth place, which include George Strait concert tickets for two in Las Vegas, $1,000 and $500, will be given away.

For more ticket and prize information, contact ICOW President Bobby Giesse at 307-334-3680.
