What is the Mutton Money Run?

Area children between the ages of 4 and 11 are invited to participate in the first ever Beef Empire Days Rodeo Mutton Money Run, sponsored by Western State Bank. During the Mutton Money Run, Beef Empire Days representatives will release dozens of sheep into the arena with tags placed on each sheep listing a specific dollar amount (between $5 and $50). Participating children will be directed to chase the sheep and snag the tags which will then be redeemed for the cash prizes listed on each tag.
