STOCKDALE -- For one young lady, the thought of roping with Buck Taylor is an honor. To win third place while paired with Taylor made the day more special, since the April 26 roping event was Cassidy Howard’s first competition.

Taylor returned to Stockdale to compete and visit during the ninth annual Buck Taylor South Central Texas ICA (Independent Cattlemen’s Association) Benefit Team Ropin’ event.

The cattleman, actor, and Western artist was inducted as a trustee in the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum for his role as Newly on TV’s “Gunsmoke.” He is also remembered for his role in the film, “Tombstone.”

Taylor reminded the ropers, “We are keeping the cattlemen’s issues in mind today as we want to preserve what cattlemen do. We all need to promote our cattlemen.”

He has joined the local chapter of the Texas ICA to promote the issues faced by today’s cattlemen.

Winners

More than 300 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.

Ramon Rios of Tilden won two first-place titles serving as a heeler. His first win was with Lane Alaniz of Flatonia in the No. 7 roping. His second win was with Lucas Barfield of Floresville in the No. 11 roping. Barfield is no stranger to the event’s winners’ circle, since he won first place last year in the No. 7 roping event.

Terry Hellman of Jourdanton won first in the No. 9 roping while teamed with Quest Garza of Tilden. Before the event was over, Hellman won two more times.

Three ropers dominated the No. 11 roping, winning belt buckles and cash -- Hellman of Jourdanton, Ronnie Lucich of Refugio, and Trey Wheeler of Floresville -- all placing twice.

See “ICA roping winners” for the rundown.

Local ICA chapter

The South Central Texas Independent Cattlemen’s Association (ICA) chapter does not collect membership due. Proceeds from the roping event help offset costs for 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’s fund-raiser. The ICA Convention & Trade Show is set for Wednesday through Friday, June 18-20, in Beaumont.

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

For more information about the state ICA or convention, call 512-620-0162 or visit www.icatexas.com.
