STOCKDALE -- Despite cloudy skies and muggy conditions, a record number of teams competed in the eighth annual Buck Taylor South Central Texas ICA [Independent Cattlemen’s Association] Benefit Team Ropin’ event April 27 in Stockdale. More than 400 teams gave it their all in the No. 7, No. 9, and No. 11 roping events for their chance to win Crossroads belt buckles, breast collars, bronc halters, Cactus Ropes, and prize money.

Adan Coronado of Beeville, Jonathon Talamantez of La Vernia, and Jaime Macias of Floresville were all multiple winners.

Coronado lassoed a first-place finish with Lucas Barfield of Floresville in the No. 7 roping, earning both men Crossroads belt buckles. Coronado returned to the winners’ circle for a third-place finish with Justin Cox. A total of 120 teams competed in this round.

Macias, while teamed up with Javi Cordova of Jourdanton, lassoed a first-place finish in the No. 11 against 87 other teams. Macias returned to the winners’ circle with Dave Warnasch of Spring Branch with a third-place ranking, earning each a bronc halter.

Talamantez earned a couple of breast collars for placing second in the No. 9 roping event while teamed with Gary Mills of Stockdale. He later joined Rusty Badillo of Kenedy in the No. 11 for a second win.

Roland Reyes of Goliad and Justin Vallejo of Lockhart placed first in the No. 9 roping round against 199 other teams.

According to ICA chapter President Brad Cotton, records were broken that day -- sponsors, concessions, teams, and the silent auction. Dr. Glen Tate of Adkins, a director of the state ICA, was on hand for the No. 7 presentation.

The roping event saw a 60-percent increase from last year. This led to an all-day competition for ropers of all ages.

The chapter does not collect membership dues, so the roping event is a fund-raiser to assist with conducting three quarterly meetings annually. The meetings include a complimentary supper and guest speakers who address timely issues.

Proceeds also defray costs involved with a trailer donated to the state ICA Convention & Trade Show, set for Wednesday through Friday, June 26-28, in Bastrop.

For the fifth year, the ICA has teamed up with the Floresville High School welding class to fabricate a trailer for the chapter as a community project, with the cattlemen assuming all costs involved. This was the brainchild of director Alton Kuykendall, now retired from the Floresville Independent School District.

The ICA, according to the event organizers, is “a grass-roots organization that is dedicated to presenting a strong voice for the beef industry statewide and nationally.”

For more information about the local ICA chapter, contact Cotton at 830-391-0337.
