In 1962 the association began what has become one of the crowd favorites: the Match Calf Roping. The Roping Fiesta Committee selects two of the top ropers to compete in a two round, head to head competition of calf roping. Each roper will rope 12 head of calves- six in each of two rounds. The same twelve head are used for each roper, with the advantage being to the champion match roper from the previous year whom chooses which set of calves they want to rope first. The ropers allowed to break the barrier, miss the first loop, and rope the legs of the calf but they must tie three legs together and the tie must stay for six seconds. The twelve runs are added for a total time, and the roper with the fastest time gets not only the title of Champion Match Roper at the richest match roping in the world, but a winner take all $20,000 pot!

The Match Roping is held in conjunction with the Invitational Calf Roping, and held at the Outdoor Roping Arena. Tickets are $12.00 each, and seating is reserved. Tickets may be purchased at the gate or in advance at the stock show office or by phone at 325-653-7785.
