USTPA Productions Continues Partnership with Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™

(Fort Worth, Texas) – Team penning will come to the largest livestock show and rodeo in the world as USTPA Productions, the event division of the United States Team Penning Association (USTPA), has entered into a partnership with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in the production of a March 8-10 team penning and ranch sorting competition. Last year the 2nd Team Penning and Ranch Sorting competition was held at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeoand proved to be a tremendous success. Over 1,000 teams competed in 2008 for over $130,000 in cash and prizes.

“We are excited to be a part of the prestigious Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo,” said USTPA Executive Director SuzAnn Spindor. “The atmosphere of excitement of competing at this elite event is something our members look forward to.”

A full slate of classes will be offered in both Team Penning and Ranch Sorting with two arenas operating concurrently. The total estimated purse is more than $170,000 in cash and prizes, including Gist buckles to all class winners.

Events will begin at 8 a.m. each day in Reliant Arena located on the grounds of the Show and easily accessible from Loop 610 and Fannin Street.

“Team penning and ranch sorting is a great addition to the attractions of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo,” said Skip Wagner, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo president. “We look forward to welcoming USTPA’s members back to Houston for this event.”

The Show’s Team Penning and Ranch Sorting Committee will assist exhibitors with unloading trailers, will provide snacks and meals throughout the competition as well as will assist with cattle and arena duties.

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a Section 501(c)(3) charitable event that benefits youth, supports education, and facilitates better agricultural practices through exhibitions and presentation. Since the Show’s beginning in 1932, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has contributed more than $230 million to scholarships, research, endowments, calf scramble participants, junior show exhibitors, the Rodeo Institute for Teacher Excellence™, School Art participants, and other educational and youth programs.
