Livestock Welfare Surveys

PRCA has continuously called upon on-site, independent rodeo veterinarians at PRCA-sanctioned events to conduct livestock welfare surveys. The purpose of the surveys is to determine the rate of injury to rodeo livestock and the effectiveness of PRCA livestock welfare rules. Over the years, the results have continued to show a rate of injury that is very, very low averaging .0005.  Overwhelmingly the on-site rodeo veterinarians comment that the livestock is healthy and well-suited to rodeo competition.  Here are a few quotes:

"Excellent.  Very well cared for.  Animal Welfare very important to this stock contractor." 

  --Silver City, NM rodeo veterinarian

"All stock appeared comfortable, in good body condition; no injuries noted in pen. All stock appeared sound, witnessed normal appetites, cattle chewing cut, and sufficient feed and water at all times." 

--Logan, UT rodeo veterinarian

"Visual inspection of stock showed no cause for concern.  Animals were in good condition, no sign of disease, etc.  Stock still looked good  at the end of the rodeo.  Were well fed and watered adequately & had sprinklers going on pens for dust control & to reduce heat." 

--Preston, ID rodeo veterinarians

"Excellent stock - Excellent care and management." 

--Jasper, TX rodeo veterinarian

"Excellent care!  Beautiful condition."            

--Payson, AZ rodeo veterinarian
