3B Cattle & Infinity Cattle, of Miami and Floydada, won the Top-Team Award at the Maverick Ranch Rodeo on June 15, in Cimarron, New Mexico, and received their first-ever invitation to the WRCA World Championship Ranch Rodeo, to be held in Amarillo on Nov. 7-10.
3B & Infinity was represented by Ryan McCoy, Cutter McLain, Gatlin Duncan, Todd Beedy, Payte Beedy and Zack Burson of Miami, Clarendon, Floydada, and Silverton. At the Maverick Ranch Rodeo, 16 teams competed for top team, top hand, top horse, and event awards.
“The branding was important for us at Cimarron because it was tough,” said team captain Ryan McCoy. “There were very large calves that had to be roped by two feet and two feet only, and there was no loping in the herd.
“The team is made up of guys from a wide-range of ages who have worked together or for each other for many years,” he said. “You really need guys that are very versatile on great horses that can rope.”
In March of 1995, a group of people from across the western United States created the Working Ranch Cowboys Association. WRCA produces the World Championship Ranch Rodeo as a means to showcase the skills of the working-ranch cowboy and to raise funds for the WRCA Foundation.The WRCA works to promote ranching on a national and international level and to preserve the lifestyle of the working-ranch cowboy.
