The Great Basin Bull Sale returns to the Rafter 3C Arena with four days of events of interest to any rancher, breeder, dog-lover or general livestock enthusiast.

Come down to the Rafter 3C Arena on February 14 and 15 to watch skilled working stock dogs compete with their handlers in the Mountain States Stock Dog Association dog trials, to kick off the week’s events. Start time is 7:30 a.m. each day and admission to the stands is free.

The Fallon Ranch Hand Rodeo hosts a hot iron branding event on February 16 at 8 a.m. Watch teams of men, women and families compete for a check in the lifestyle competition. Free to attend.

Join us and the Rusty Canteen bar for a social hour in the arena on February 16 at 4 p.m. Follow that with the Great Basin Bull Sale tri-tip dinner served at 5:30 p.m. Finish the night with dancing and a performance featuring country music singer Chad Bushnell, who was recently awarded “Modern Country Song of the Year” at the Josie Music Awards. Tickets for the dinner and dance are $30 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under and must be purchased in advance online or with cash at the Community Activities/Parks & Recreation Office, 325 Sheckler Road, weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. 

Finish the week on Saturday, February 17 at 1 p.m. at the Rafter 3C Arena with the Great Basin Bull Sale where discerning bull buyers can select from a large selection of performance-tested and range bulls for purchase. Need to use age-advantaged bulls or high-efficiency genetics? Both will be available! The bull sale event is also free to attend.
