This year’s Ben Johnson Memorial Steer Roping will be held on Saturday — not Sunday (on Father’s Day), as it has been in the past.

That announcement was made recently by the Osage County Cattleman’s Association, which sponsors the popular invitational roping as part of the annual OCCA Convention.

As a result, the 60th-annual Ben Johnson Steer Roping is slated for Saturday, June 15, beginning at 3 p.m. at the Osage County Fairgrounds Arena in Pawhuska. Junior roping competitions for kids are set to start at 2 p.m.
