NIXON -- After the 25th annual Nixon-Smiley Livestock Show’s Wild Hog Cook-off and Ranch Rodeo was rescheduled due to the weather, the 12 teams competing Nov. 16 in the ranch rodeo gave it their all. JC Ranch reclaimed the title it earned in 2011, defeating last year’s champion, the Brisco Ranch.

But winning the event was no easy task, since five of the top seven leaders in the San Antonio Ranch Rodeo circuit battled it out in the first round to advance to the finals.

JC Ranch led the way in the goat race, winning with a time of 25.85 seconds. Briscoe Ranch -- ranked No. 5 in the San Antonio standings -- came in second, with a time of 30.31. L&W Cattle’s time of 30.72 clinched a third-place finish for the cowboys. South Texas Cattle Marketing placed fourth, with a time of 30.91.

Cold Leather Cattle Co. led the way in the branding contest with a time of 25.84, followed by L&W Cattle’s time of 27 for second place. JC Ranch earned additional points by placing third with a time of 28.87, outpacing Reeves Cattle Co.’s 29.15.

Gringo Fencing’s impressive time of 46.34 earned the team first place in the double mugging contest. Cold Leather Cattle Co. caught their two animals with a time of 55.41, good enough for a second-place finish. JC Ranch rounded out the top three, with a 58.50 finish. These three teams advanced to the final round, along with Briscoe Ranch, Paloma Cattle Co. -- seeded No. 4 in the San Antonio Ranch Rodeo circuit standings -- and Sunset Hill Ranch.

Final round

JC Ranch was determined to regain its title in front of their hometown supporters, taking first in all three events of the final round.

•Bull-loading: first, JC Ranch, 28.97; second, Briscoe Ranch, 61.54; third, Gringo Fencing, 72.31; and fourth, Cold Leather Cattle Co., fourth, 73.

•Wild-cow milking: first, JC Ranch, 28.85; second, Gringo Fencing, 32.25; third, Paloma Cattle Co., 42.59; fourth, Cold Leather Cattle Co., 43.59.

•Stampede/penning: first, JC Ranch, 69.12; second, Gringo Fencing, 75.12; third, Cold Leather Cattle Co., 80.59; and fourth, Briscoe Ranch, 93.10.

The JC Ranch team, consisting of Ty Brzozowski, Josh Baros, Cole Applegate, Cale Applegate, and Justin Wahlberg, finished first, winning $2,400. Their combined time was 126.94.

Other final round results included:

•Second, Gringo Fencing, 179.68, awarded $1,450.

•Third, Cold Leather Cattle Co., 197.18, $975 in prize money.

•Fourth, Briscoe Ranch; fifth, Paloma Cattle Co.; and sixth, Sunset Hill Ranch.

SA event

The points from this contest will be added to points accumulated from nine other San Antonio Ranch Rodeo events held since March.

The Nixon-Smiley event did not break the sixth-place tie between Reeves Cattle Co. and South Texas Cattle Marketing. Although both teams competed in the Nixon-Smiley event, neither advanced to the final round.

No. 3-ranking M&M Cattle Co. also competed in Nixon, but did not compete in the finals.

Watch for the top six teams to compete in the ranch rodeo finals set for Sunday, Feb. 23, in the Expo Hall on the Freeman Coliseum/AT&T Center grounds in San Antonio.

Future leaders

Also competing in San Antonio will be the Nixon-Smiley team of Madi Holmes, Cayden Kalous, and Eric Scarbrough. These young cowboys and cowgirl will compete in the Little Ranch Hands rodeo event. Teams are selected from each location where a qualifying event is held.

New this year was a calf scramble, held before the ranch rodeo. According to Nixon-Smiley board Director Janna Wheat, “our board awarded vouchers for up to $1,500 to four Nixon-Smiley Livestock Show kids to be used towards the purchase of an animal project for our 2014 show.”

Winners included:

•Third to fifth grades -- Javen Mendiola

•Sixth to eighth grades -- Emily Riley and Shelby Lay (tie)

•High school -- Meaghan Fonseca.

Proceeds of the ranch rodeo support the Nixon 4-H, Passion For Paws, and the Nixon-Smiley Band Boosters.
