Please join us at the Grand Opening of the Rustler Ag & Equine Complex on Central Wyoming College’s main campus in Riverton. The event will be held Saturday, Aug. 26 from 10 a.m. to noon, and will feature a ribbon-cutting and tours of our new 85,000-square-foot complex, which will house CWC’s agriculture programs. We have been building out CWC’s agriculture program and added meat processing, small-scale farming, agriculture entrepreneurship, ranch management and more! This facility will also serve as the home of our premier equine program, Livestock Judging Team, Rodeo Team and Ranch Horse Team.

We hope you’ll be able to join us to celebrate the opening of this fantastic facility and meet our faculty and students. We believe the Rustler Complex will be an economic driver for Fremont County and the region and we are excited to explore all the ways we can continue to grow business in the Agriculture and Equine areas, as well as other sectors. In fact, to bolster Wyoming as the leader in quality and craft beef, we have combined this Rustler Complex Grand Opening with the 4th annual Rendezvous City Beef Round-Up, where beef producers across the nation come to compete in the Best Beef in Wyoming and Best Beef in the West.

If you have a brand in your family, there will also be a special chance to add that brand to artwork for the building during the Grand Opening, so bring your branding irons! The entrance to the facility is at 1110 Day Drive in Riverton, close to the entrance to the baseball fields.  We look forward to seeing you there, and please feel free to forward this invitation to others who may be interested.
