Ontario Rodeo Tour Schedule

www.ontariorodeo.com 

The RAM Rodeo will feature 10 events throughout Ontario and the CASE IH Ultimate Tour will be hosting 5 events in its second year. All these events will be Sanctioned by the Canadian Cowboys Association along with select ones also being sanctioned by the Association des Cowboys de l'Est au Canada (ACEC). We welcome the Cowboys and Cowgirls from Quebec and the United States to the events and wish them luck through the summer.

There are no shortage of opportunities at each and every one of these events as points and money earned go towards the RAM Championships in Newmarket and will qualify competitors to the Toronto Royal Invitational Rodeo in November 2014. Points will also count towards the Canadian CCA Championships in Regina. The top competitor in the eastern CCA rodeos in Ontario will be awarded one automatic entry in the standard events at the Regina Agribition.  

In addition, All RAM Rodeos will feature $1,000.00 added prize money in standard events as well as most Case IH events.

The second Rodeo kicks off in Milverton, June 21-22

The Milverton Rodeo as the third stop on the 2014 RAM Rodeo Tour.   Milverton is a community located in the Township of Perth East in Perth County, Ontario.  A village small in numbers but large in heart, Milverton is situated north of Stratford on Perth Road 131, and Northwest of Kitchener-Waterloo.  A significant Amish and Mennonite population live near the village, bringing a traditional sense of charm and nostalgia to this community, one nestled in the heartland of Ontario's agricultural bounty.  Local roads are shared with horse and buggies and hand-made quilts and wooden furniture can be found in nearby shops which make for an enjoyable shopping experience in the Milverton-Millbank area.

The Milverton Rodeo Committee is busy preparing for the 24th annual Milverton Rodeo and is proud of the fact that they host the longest-consecutively running rodeo in the province.  Three local service groups have worked together for almost two and a half decades to ensure the tradition continues: Milverton Agricultural Society, Milverton Lions Club, and the Optimist Club of Mornington.  Because of their combined efforts, numerous community projects have come to fruition: in 2003 the outdoor rodeo ring was constructed (voted best rodeo ring on the RAM circuit for the last four seasons) and in 2012 the brand new Milverton Agri Centre was completed, a unique building and the first of its kind in Ontario which is definitely the hub of the 20 acre property.  These two important additions to the Fairgrounds only enhance the experience for both the visitor and the competitor alike.

In addition to the two RAM Rodeo performances (Saturday & Sunday at 2 p.m.) and the "legendary” Saturday Night Rodeo Dance, featuring the band Dry County, there are many exciting additions to the line-up. The weekend activities start Friday night at 6 p.m. when the food booth (offering wings) and the refreshment gardens open.  In the grassed area, the NEW children’s activities will be taking place and at 7 p.m. the RAM Youth Challenge will commence in the rodeo ring.  The Darcy John Band takes the stage at 8 p.m. to play some country-rock and will feature some rising local talent!  On Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the “Rodeo Sidewalk Sales” will take place along Main Street, promising lots of excellent buys for those who are willing to search out the best deals!   On Sunday morning from 8 a.m. to noon, treat the family a hearty country breakfast provided by local Swiss families which will satisfy your appetite for good home-cooking and from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. local youth will entertain on the rodeo stage.
Together these events are shaping up to make June 20, 21 & 22 a truly unforgettable weekend in the country.  Milverton Rodeo is one tour stop that should not be missed as it exemplifies an entire community coming together for a terrific weekend of fun, family & festivities.

Admission to the Rodeo Grounds is free all weekend and remember to purchase rodeo tickets in advance to save $ 5.00 each.  Visit www.milvertonramrodeo.com for all the details!

U.S.-Mexico corn fight could hurt barley growers

A brewing corn trade war between Mexico and the United States could have dire consequences for Canadian barley growers, says an analyst.

The U.S. winter wheat crop is in terrible shape as 2022 draws to a close, but that is not necessarily a precursor of what’s to come in 2023, says an analyst. An estimated 34 percent of the crop was rated good-to-excellent as of Nov. 29, down from 44 percent the same time one year ago.
