Harvest Fair Cattle Sorting

This is the first year that this event has been held at the Williams Lake Harvest Fair. Cattle were supplied by LeeAnn’s No Land and Cattle Company.

Twenty riders took part in the event where teams of two riders work cattle through a gate opening in specific number order. There were two classes — the drawpot where team partners are picked out of a hat and had three turns at working together and the jackpot class where riders chose their own partners and had one turn together. Money was added to both classes for payout.
