HOUSTON, March 21 (Xinhua) -- On a ranch, wranglers are cowhands who maneuver herds of horses or cattle. At the world's largest rodeo, Joe Bruce Hancock is a top wrangler Wholesale Paris Saint-Germain Jerseys , managing not only livestock but staff, volunteers and events that spread over 320 acres.

After serving as a volunteer vice president in charge of several committees, Hancock was recently named vice president and general manager of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

He runs operations -- what goes on behind the scenes and the final products and performances the audience of about 75,000 people per day see through the run of the March 3-22 rodeo.

"That's about five times as many people as the next (largest) rodeo and the rodeo grosses about 130 million (U.S.) dollars," said Hancock, 60 Wholesale Manchester United Jerseys , an independent business owner from Texas with interests in cattle, land management, oil and gas. "Of course, it costs quite a bit to put on the rodeo because we're building (the equivalent of) a city."

Still, there's enough left over at the end of every rodeo to give out about 25 million U.S. dollars in college scholarships and grants to Texas youth, a main purpose -- other than entertainment -- behind the Houston rodeo Wholesale Manchester City Jerseys , he said.

Hancock started volunteering with Houston's annual rodeo in 1982, but his memory of the Houston rodeo's showmanship predates that by several decades.

"It was probably about 1960 and I was about 4 or 5 years old when I went to the rodeo with my grandfather," he said. "I mostly remember a rodeo clown shooting a big shotgun up into the air and a rubber duck falling out of the ceiling. Every time he shot the gun, I spilled my snow cone."

While his Western hat is a fixture of his ranch and rodeo wardrobe, Hancock did not always wear a suit and tie to work. He grew up in the ranching business, on the family ranch he now owns Wholesale Liverpool Jerseys , working horses and cattle.

"I was raised in the livestock world, farming and ranching, about 75 miles outside of Houston," Hancock said. "My family has been involved in the farming and ranching industry for a hundred years. We have a cattle operation and do all the things that ranchers do -- the kind of work the rodeo came from."

He describes his current job as "loading the wagon and making sure the show is ready to go," handling details like ticketing, marketing Wholesale Leicester City Jerseys , shops, the carnival, the children's section, exhibit halls and the main arena, everything about the rodeo other than legal, accounting and human resources departments.

At night Wholesale Juventus Jerseys , before the big-ticket entertainer begins the concert phase of the rodeo after the dust has settled from the livestock roping and rides, Hancock can be found at the back stage, presenting an official rodeo belt buckle to the evening's recording artist.

But his favorite part of the rodeo is interacting with the people with whom he has built solid relationships for nearly 30 years and watching the children from Houston and surrounding cities and towns gain exposure to the rodeo's Western culture.

"I like seeing the inner-city kids who come out and experience what the rodeo has to offer," Hancock said. "It's amazing to see the eyes-wide-open expressions on their faces when they see the animals and all the things that go along with what we do out here."

He said his philosophy of management is to hire the best people for the job and let them do their job. When an employee needs validation or help with a decision, he will step in with his opinion.

"We don't micro-manage. We have full-time staff that helps manage the rodeo's 31,800 volunteers Wholesale Inter Milan Jerseys ," Hancock said. "I just make sure everybody is working as a team."

Hancock's advice for prospective visitors considering a visit to the Houston rodeo?

"Get here early and spend all day."

Feature: Grand champion buyers steer prize back to world's largest rodeo

HOUSTON, March 21 (Xinhua) -- If there is a single moment in the 20 days of the world's largest rodeo that epitomizes what the Houston event is all about -- Western themes generating student scholarships in an entertaining format -- it is the high-roller and live auction of the student-raised grand champion steer.

So why did the winning buyers of this year's top beef on the hoof decide Saturday afternoon, after paying 300,000 U.S. dollars for a single orange-and-white, 1,379-pound steer named Peaches Wholesale Borussia Dortmund Jerseys , to donate their expensive purchase back to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo?
