Baton Rouge, La. – The pouring rain couldn’t stop the Southern University Land-Grant Campus’ Jaguar Rodeo on the Bluff. The event was held at the Maurice A. Edmond Livestock Arena on April 14.
A large crowd of individuals from Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi enjoyed barrel racing, team roping, a nearly five mile trail ride through the City of Baker and a zydeco dance featuring Lil’ Nathan and the Zydeco Big Timers and singer, songwriter, and entertainer Sweet Nay.
Proceeds from the rodeo will be used to support student scholarships within the Southern University College of Agricultural, Family and Consumer Sciences.
The rodeo was sponsored by the Southern University Agricultural Land-Grant Campus, the Mayors of Baton Rouge and Baker, La., SU Land-Grant Campus alumni, and a host of other supporters.
The Southern University Ag Center and the SU College of Agricultural, Family and Consumer Sciences together are called the Southern University Agricultural Land-Grant Campus.
