Calf Scramble

August 10, 2017 @ 8:00 am - December 1, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

During each rodeo performance at the stock show, you see  a bunch of kids in the arena trying to catch a calf; this is called “Calf Scramble”.  If you are 12 years old (by August 31, 2017) and will not be past your junior year in high school, you are eligible to participate in the calf scramble.  If selected to scramble, you will attend a rodeo performance and attempt to catch a wild calf.  If you catch a calf, you will receive a certificate to purchase an animal (each show is different in what type of animal can be purchased) you then are required to exhibit it at the show the following year. REMINDER: You are not eligible to scramble at a show where you have previously caught a calf.  You must be enrolled in 4-H for the 2017-2018 year (enrollment is on 4-H Connect beginning September 1st) you must also be academically eligible at the time of scramble.  If  you are interested in participating  in any of the major show (San Antonio, Houston, San Angelo, Star of Texas) calf scrambles, complete the calf scramble form available here and  return it to our office.   You are welcome to fax the form to 631-0429 or scan and email to
