Cedar Rapids, IA (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Diamond V, the world’s leading supplier of nutritional fermentation products, is proud to announce its sponsorship of a rising star in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), bull rider Tate Stratton, a Texas A&M graduate in Animal Science.
“Diamond V is proud to sponsor Tate Stratton, one of our country’s top professional rodeo athletes,” says John Bloomhall, President and CEO of Diamond V. “We find Tate’s dedication to championship bull riding equal to the dedication of Diamond V in delivering superior products.”
“Diamond V is a major player in livestock nutrition and I’m grateful to them for the chance to further my professional bull riding career and pursue my championship goals,” says Stratton.
Ranked ninth in the PRCA Pro Rodeo world standings, Stratton has qualified for his third Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. The 10-day NFR, held the first full week in December, is the premier championship rodeo event in the United States. Referred to as the World Series of Rodeo as well as the Super Bowl of Rodeo, the NFR wraps up the PRCA season. World championship titles are awarded to each individual who earns the most money in his/her event.
During 2012, Stratton captured six major wins: the Caldwell (Idaho) Night Rodeo; Pioneer Days Rodeo in Clovis, New Mexico; Jerome (Idaho) County Fair and Rodeo; Angelina County Benefit Rodeo in Lufkin, Texas; Coleman (Texas) PRCA Rodeo; and the Kennewick (Washington) Xtreme Bulls tour Division 2. A risky sport, bull riding has been called the most dangerous eight seconds in sports as the bull rider must stay atop the bucking bull for a full eight seconds.
