Brad Good, Swenson Land and Cattle, won the hearts of the entire crowd. After teammate Mark Voss headed one of the two steers in the stray gathering, Brad roped the heels and his horse began to buck......

He still has it......

About Stray Gathering

In a Working Ranch Cowboys Association (WRCA) ranch rodeo contestants compete in teams representing ranches, not as individuals as in a "regular" rodeo. In the stray gathering event four members of the ranch rodeo team ride into the arena, then two steers are also turned into the arena. The team members must head, heel, and tie down both steers. The stray gathering event is a timed event, with the fastest time being the winner.
