Cowboy heritage

Tata Chemicals North America was among the sponsors of the 2018 National High School Finals Rodeo (NHSFR), held in Rock Springs, Wyoming, in July. NHSFR is the world’s largest rodeo, featuring around 1,500 contestants from across the United States, Canada and Australia. Cowboys are a part of Wyoming’s heritage, and this is the fourth time in history that the company has associated itself with the event. “Old style ranching is dying, but people in Wyoming still ranch in traditional ways. We have summer ranchers that still cut and bale hay and feed it to cows with a team of horses and a wagon. That’s impressive,” says John Fackrell, vice president, manufacturing.
