The Cattle Call queen contest has come and gone and the three young women who took part in it deserve praise for the hard work and professionalism they have shown. Each has proven to be a positive representative of the Cattle Call Rodeo.
The 2001 court consists of Cattle Call Queen Lindsay Taylor, First Princess Carly Slater and Second Princess Eleanor Nilson. Each worked hard in the months leading to the contest in fine-tuning their horsemanship skills and on getting ready for all aspects of the contest. It is not easy to do. It takes time. It takes commitment. It takes courage.
Each of the contestants finds herself facing new responsibilities as a role model for children and as a representative of the rodeo, both in and outside the Imperial Valley.
The Cattle Call queen contest is a long-standing tradition in the Imperial Valley. The Valley has a rich history and the Cattle Call queen competition, parade and rodeos all play a vital role in that history.
