The Flying U reaches 50 years with Cattle Call

This year’s Cattle Call Rodeo is a time of milestones. The rodeo itself is celebrating its 60th anniversary, but that is not the only anniversary. It is also the 50th anniversary of the Flying U Rodeo’s partnership with the rodeo to provide the stock and entertainment.

As always, Cotton Rosser, 88, who has owned the Flying U since 1956, will be in attendance in a community he considers his second home. While he has handed operations to his wife, Karin and son Reno, he is always there to oversee the rodeo company he has led for so many years.
