Cattledog trials scheduled Saturday, Sunday
When Curtis Travis was in high school, participating in cattledog trials was something he never imagined he would do. However, four years ago, Travis bought his first cattledog, and that all changed.
Now, a cattledog trial is scheduled 8:30 a.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. Sunday at the Travis Farm, 2240 Iris Ave. Signs will be posted along roadways to guide people to the event. The cattledog trial is a sanctioned trial, and part of The United States Border Collie Handler’s Association Inc. Members who qualify at a sanctioned trial are eligible to compete in the USBCHA National Sheep and Cattledog Finals.
“There are people coming from everywhere for this,” said Travis. “I have a guy coming from South Dakota who is bringing five dogs, and there is a guy coming from Alabama. We may have people from Texas and Illinois coming, too. We probably have 20 to 25 handlers coming.”
