Press Release from the USBCHA National Cattledog Finals

Missouri is one of the largest cattle producing states in the United States.  With that being said, Johnson County, where Leeton is located, is the largest cattle producing county in the state of Missouri.

The hosting site for this event is located at the home of Thad, Kelly, Whitney, and Wyatt Fleming.  The Flemings have hosted many dog trials at their farm over the last serveral years; with as many as 330 dogs running in one weekend with two field running at the same time.  These events have been very successful due to the support of many volunteers’ and handlers’.

Co-Chairing the event will be the Leeton FFA.  The parents and children of the FFA organization are excited about this event coming to Leeton, MO and are committed to help make the USBCHA National Cattledog Finals a success.
