Cruelty is His Business
Meet Cotton Rosser, owner of the Flying U Rodeo Company.
Cotton is what the rodeo industry calls a “stock contractor”. His company supplies the livestock for rodeos and in many instances his company will also produce the entire rodeo. Cotton Rosser is one of the oldest and most well-known names in all of rodeo. Rosser has been called the P. T. Barnum of Rodeo…..among other things. Some of the rodeos that Cotton supplies animals for are the National Finals Rodeo, the Rowell Ranch Rodeo, the Reno Rodeo, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and the Grand National Rodeo in San Francisco to name just a few.
The PRCA has lavished many, many awards on Cotton. In fact, in 1995 he was inducted into the PRCA’s ProRodeo Hall of Fame. Cotton has also served on the PRCA Board of Directors.
You would expect a man with all of these awards and accomplishments to be above reproach and an example of the very best the PRCA has to offer, right?
Well, you be the judge of that.
