Each year, the MSU Rodeo Club sends a team of students to rodeos throughout the Ozark Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA). These students will compete in ten rodeos throughout the year in an attempt against other colleges to qualify for the Collegiate National Finals Rodeo (CFNR) in June.
