Pro Rodeo Clown – Allan Dessel

My name is Allan Dessel.  I grew up in rural Cherokee County in Iowa.  My family and I live six miles from the Barnes PRCA Rodeo ranch, so I have known the Barnes family my whole life.  I started helping the Barnes family at their rough stock schools when I was about 13.  The Barnes Ranch was actually the first place I ever fought a bull.

Ever since I can remember, all I wanted to do in life was fight bulls.  My dad was a professional bull fighter for 10 years before I was born.  I grew up listening to his stories and looking at pictures of him.  I was hooked.  He told me about fighting bulls.  He taught me the do’s and dont’s.  I started fighting bulls as a sophomore in high school at the age of 15.  That spring, I got my first job at a high school rodeo in Estherville, Iowa from the Barnes family.  From there I continued to make connections and worked on my bull fighting.  I was accepted into the PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) the summer after I graduated from high school.  I was 18 at the time, which is the youngest age eligible for acceptance into the PRCA.  I fought my first PRCA rodeo for the Barnes family one day after my 19th birthday in my hometown of Cherokee, Iowa.  In 2003 and 2004, I worked over 40 performances per year with the Barnes PRCA Rodeo Family in nine states, from Nebraska to New Jersey.  I ended my rookie year in the PRCA by working the Benny Binion Bucking Bull Sale at the NFR (National Finals Rodeo) in Las Vegas, Nevada.   Since 2003, I have been given the opportunity to work the Great Lakes Circuit Finals in Louisville, Kentucky, in 2004, 2006, and 2008.
