Stock Contractor Marty Barnes said, “The Charolais and Brahma crossbred bull usually does two jumps then turns back.” A ProRodeo history nugget is Barnes PRCA Rodeo had stock at the very first, 1959, National Finals Rodeo (NFR) held in Dallas, Texas. Nearly 8 decades later they bring stock back to Texas for the 2020 Wrangler NFR.
