Annually high school students comprised of the Wapello FFA Chapter plan, manage and makes all arrangements to host the annual ProRodeo. This is a fundraiser for Wapello FFA providing scholarships, student development, state and national convention registrations. They continue to work hard on bringing family friendly entertainment to Louisa County and also provide a community equestrian arena. The long term plan is to continue developing the park into a multi-use recreational area; including baseball diamonds, a covered arena, outdoor track and much more.
In 1981, the Wapello FFA student chapter and their advisor, Ron Stover, took a big step to bring bucking horses and rodeo bulls to their hometown. FFA members worked hard to get it all together, even building gates in class to make the arena and then selling them to farmers for fundraising. The Wapello Pro Rodeo has been going strong ever since.
In 2009, the FFA members and advisor, Irv Meier, held true to their motto: Step up and step out. Just as their parents and other FFA members before them, they have took the challenge to make the show better than ever before. With only months to go, they made a major leap hiring Barnes PRCA Rodeo and received Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) sanctioning status with the support of their community.
