June 7, 2019 - An opportunity for ranchers and small-acreage landowners to learn more about grazing management is Saturday, June 22, at Amsden Creek Wildlife Habitat Management Area near Dayton.

Full UW Rodeo Teams Take Aim at CNFR Success

June 4, 2019 — Even though more than half of the 10 University of Wyoming College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR) qualifiers will compete in their first finals next week, that does not mean they lack experience, first-year Coach Beau Clark says.

For the first time in 13 years, UW qualified full six-man and four-woman teams for collegiate rodeo’s biggest event June 9-15 at the Casper Events Center. The Cowboys and Cowgirls enter the competition on a roll, having won their respective Central Rocky Mountain Region (CRMR) divisions this past spring -- also 13 years since both clubs captured regional championships the same academic year.
