Annual Rancher Round-Up at Union Center

F.Ganje - August 13, 2019

UNION CENTER, SD – Back in the day, it wasn’t uncommon for folks to gather on the prairie, create a makeshift arena, buck a few horses, rope a few steers and enjoy each other’s company.  The annual Rancher Round-Up is a throw-back to that time.  Hosted by Cammack Ranch Supply, Gary Cammack remembers how it started 17 years ago.

“We wanted it to be something to include the folks in the area,” says Cammack. “We moved towards a Ranch Rodeo which is very inclusive - from the kids in Mutton Bustin’ all the way up to the folks who are involved in every day ranching  The events showcase the talent and capabilities of the local ranchers and what they do every day.”

This year’s event gets underway Wed., August 14th, offering something for everyone.  A Kids Rodeo kicks off at 10am and a Trade Show with 50+ vendors runs from 11am to 3pm.  There’s free burgers and brats served from 12 Noon to 2pm and the Ranch Rodeo at 2:30pm with the Calcutta at 2pm

“Those kids, especially in the Mutton Bustin’, that’s always great entertainment,” laughs Cammack, who adds,  “The Round-Up gives folks the opportunity to get together with friends and neighbors.  Folks are busy and don’t always have an opportunity to do that. I think the fellowship is a big part of it.”

For those in production agriculture and those who are a part of the commercial business industries that provide many of the services used by producers, the annual Rancher Round-Up is always a stopping off point as the fall season approaches.

“The Trade Show is an important part of the day’s events,” observes Cammack. “Every one of the businesses that are there are focused on visiting with folks in production agriculture.” He adds, “They certainly know what it takes to make a business profitable. And they also have a clear understanding of what those folks in production agriculture face on an every day basis.”
