Steer Stroll at CMU

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Colorado Mesa University's campus turned into a cattle drive as part of the rodeo team's annual Steer Stroll.

The event is a kickoff for the team's only rodeo they host all year. They saddled up their horses, and led eight steers, including the CMU mascot, Miss Mav, through campus and let them graze as they went.

Although the team did get some strange looks, one of the members says it makes her proud to share her lifestyle with her campus.

"For me, it's kind of a way of life, agriculture is very important to me and I think it's very good for people to get involved in it. And it should be preserved because it's been a very good upbringing for me and it could be a great upbringing for others as well," said CMU Senior, Teague Crane.

The rodeo starts April 12 at 7 p.m. at the Mesa County Fairgrounds.
