As we kick off this busy summer please remember, not all of our stock contractors provide day sheets online prior to their events so keep this in mind when posting and messaging on the IRA Facebook page.  If there are day sheets available we will post them to our Facebook page otherwise you will need to wait until you get to the rodeo to view the sheets.  The IRA office has no control over the preference of our Stock Contractors on this matter, nor do they send us their draw information prior to their events. If you have questions about draws you need to contact the Stock Contractors directly.  Thank you and everyone, and with that said - have a fun, safe, and profitable season!!!
