Bringing Pro Rodeo’s Best to You Since 1950

Established in 1950 Barnes PRCA Rodeo from Peterson, Iowa continues to be a premier livestock contracting company and member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association.  The longevity of Barnes PRCA Rodeo is captured in the marketplace where community celebrations have been continuous partners dating back 40, 50 and 60 years. The late founder, Bob Barnes, once told a newspaper reporter years ago, "We are to rodeo - what Cadillac is to cars."

Today Marty Barnes owns and manages all aspects of the livestock, rodeo production and breeding program with his eldest son, Westin.  Barnes PRCA Rodeo will produce nearly 30 events across the country in 2017. Visit their schedule page for a complete listing. 

The athletic talent of Barnes’ bucking horses, bulls and saddle horses is award winning.  This year marks the 40th anniversary of Crystal Springs being named the 1977 Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year.   Red Horse Crossin' was recently honored as the 2016 Great Lakes Circuit Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year.  This December,  she made her fourth consecutive trip to the Wrangler National Finals (WNFR) in Las Vegas for the Super Bowl of Pro Rodeo.  During the 2015 WNFR, she bucked off her riders and was judged the Best Bucking Horse of the performance in Rounds 3 and 8.  The Barnes’ bay mare CAT Power was selected nine consecutive times between 2005-2013 to the WNFR.  The foundation sire Boy Ballou continues to influence the breeding program.  He made five trips to the National Finals Rodeo.

Barnes PRCA Rodeo is in an elite class of PRCA Stock Contractors.  They are one of only two firms across North America selected to provide livestock for every National Finals Rodeo, since its inception in 1959.
