Biosecurity Reminder

As we have begun the busiest time of the year, the PRCA reminds all members traveling with livestock to adhere to recommended practices in biosecurity to prevent the transmission of disease.

    1. Make sure your livestock is up to date on their vaccinations.
    2. Disinfect and clean your tack, trailers, stalls, and buckets/tubs often.
    3. Do not allow your livestock to eat or drink in the same tubs, buckets, or troughs after foreign livestock.
    4. Use fly spray and fly control equipment to reduce the exposure of your livestock to possible
        disease transmission.
    5. Inspect your livestock’s health daily and consult a veterinarian for any concerns.
    6. Consult each State Veterinarian’s office or Department of Agriculture to get the requirements for
        entry or alerts.

Remuda Award Criteria & Process

The PRCA’s annual Remuda Awards go to the stock contracting firm and rodeo committee that provide the most consistent pen of bucking horses, creating the best opportunities for contestants. The Remuda Award recipients are chosen by committee. 
The riding event representative on the NFRC will organize a committee consisting of five competing saddle bronc riders and five competing bareback riders by October 1. Once formed, the 11 PRCA members will convene to determine who is most deserving of this award based on the season that is approaching its conclusion. The selection for both awards will be made by Nov. 1. 

Once a committee or stock contractor has won the Remuda Award, they will not be eligible to win it again for five years. 

Rodeo Committee Selection Overview

In order to be considered for the Remuda Award, rodeo committees must submit an expression of interest on why they should be considered for the award. Submissions are due to the PRCA’s Stock Contracting Coordinator by e-mailing to by Oct. 1. The winner will be chosen based on the rodeo committee that has demonstrated going above and beyond to provide an even set of horses for contestants and by bringing in subcontractors to improve the quality of horses at their rodeo. 

Stock Contractor Selection Overview

The stock contractor must have horses selected for the upcoming NFR. The criteria for stock contractors includes having an established breeding program and demonstrating a willingness to have the best horses possible to give cowboys a fair chance. The stock contractor must have a history of hiring subcontractors to help their rodeos give all cowboys an opportunity to win and also have served as a subcontractor at rodeos where they are not listed as the primary stock contractor. Stock contractors do not need to apply in order to be considered for the Remuda Award.
