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.  Marty Barnes manages all aspects of the livestock, rodeo production and breeding program with his eldest son, Westin.  

The longevity of Barnes PRCA Rodeo is captured in the marketplace where community celebrations dating back 40, 50 and 60 years are continuous partners.  In 2017 we are  looking forward to producing over 30 events.  We invite you to visit our schedule for a complete listing and attend multiple performances.  As our late founder, Bob Barnes, told a newspaper reporter years ago, "We are to rodeo - what Cadillac is to cars."

The athletic talent of our Barnes' bucking horses, bulls and saddle horses are award winning.  Red Horse Crossin' was recently honored as the 2016 Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year from the Great Lakes Circuit.  This year marks her fourth consecutive trip to the Wrangler National Finals (WNFR) in Las Vegas for the Super Bowl of Rodeo.  During the 2015 WNFR,  she bucked off  her riders and was judged the Best Bucking Horse of the performance in Round 3 and Round 8.  Our 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.  

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