The following is a press release from the NILE:

Billings, Montana – At the NILE Ranch Rodeo, true working ranch cowboys temporarily leave the ranch behind and head into town to compete in a team format among their peers.  The Northern International Livestock Exposition (NILE) invites fans to attend the annual NILE Ranch Rodeo Finals held Wednesday, October 15 at 7 p.m. in the Rimrock Auto Arena at Metra Park.

 This rodeo will feature eleven teams of ranch cowboys from Montana and surrounding states demonstrating the truest form of daily working ranch activities. Events in the rodeo will include bronc riding, team penning, team branding, team doctoring, and wild cow milking.  Teams compete at NILE sanctioned qualifying rodeos throughout the year for a chance to compete at the NILE Championship Ranch Rodeo Finals. 

A payout of over $8,000 will be awarded in money and prizes to the top three teams with the winning team taking home the coveted NILE “Boot Trophy.”  The night's Top Hand will receive a custom trophy saddle and a pair of silver spurs will be awarded to the rider of the Top Horse.  The winning ranch rodeo team will also earn a spot at the Working Ranch Cowboys Association Finals (WRCA) in Amarillo, TX, where they will have the opportunity to compete against other top ranch rodeo teams in the nation for thousands of dollars in prize money.
