Welcome to the official site of the
Mid-States Rodeo Association (MSRA).
The MSRA is based in Michigan and sanctions rodeos throughout the Midwest states including Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Our members compete in the seven standard rodeo events: Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Bronc Riding, Bull Riding, Tie Down Roping, Team Roping, Ladies Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling as well as Ladies Breakaway Roping.
The MSRA is proud to promote professional rodeo as a sport; to strive at all times to insure honesty and fairness to both the contestant and producer; to create an amicable relationship among stock contractors and to inspect, sanction and advertise rodeos being sponsored in accordance with association standards.
MSFR was a great success!

The Mid-States Finals Rodeo was a great success with great competition and a packed house full of rodeo fans for both performances. Contestants competed for over $49,000 in cash, plus awards for each event. Trey Casey kept the crowd entertained and Paxton Rodriquez had an exciting fire whip and trick roping specialty act. Matt McGee, as always, did a great job keeping the fans informed and announcing the action.
