In Memory of John Walter - Mid States Rodeo
1942 - 2015

John Walter, long time friend of the Ashland Cattlemen Days Rodeo passed away January 3, 2015 while doing what he loved doing, rodeo. John, known as Walt to his friends, had been the contractor for our rodeo for the past 38 years, always providing a fun and thrilling time for the fans. A sometimes gruff man, he would literally give you the shirt off his back, if you needed it, with never a thought of repayment. His passing leaves a hole in those of us who knew him, and this years rodeo will include a tribute to John and his memory. Walt, we miss you, "Roll em".





For 39 years, the Cedar Valley Riders and the Ashland Optimists have presented their PRCA rodeo in Ashland Missouri, located about 10 miles south of Columbia, Missouri on Highway 63. With one of the finest facilities in the area, and $14,000 added money, riders and fans come each August to witness America's true sport. Championship Pro-Rodeo Company of Kirksville, Mo, is our stock contractor and provides class acts and stock for the enjoyment of the crowds.
