Slim Garner Rodeo Clown & Barrelman

1 of 4
With a 2000-pound bull bearing down on you, it helps to have a sense of humor. It also helps to have a barrel to hide in. Slim Garner is a second-generation clown, who started clowning around when he was 17 years old. He has been traveling coast to coast for the past 9 year’s full time, but has been a rodeo clown for a total of 15 years. He obtained his Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Card in 2000, and travels to 30 to 40 rodeos a year. Slim has a large variety of rodeo acts to keep the crowds entertained. Anything that is loud and catches the crowds’ attention is what he likes.

Rodeo Announcer Steve Goedert

Steve Goedert returns to the Black Hills Roundup in 2020. “I can’t tell you what an absolute honor it is to be a part of this rodeo. If you announce rodeo and you think of the 4th of July, there are few places you’d rather be than Belle Fourche," says Goedert.

The BHR crow’s nest is not unfamiliar territory to Steve. He announced two events at the Roundup grounds for the Pro Roughstock Series (PRS) six years ago. During his time with the PRS he worked closely with Scott Reder, then Production Director with the PRS, who has also been a long-time member of the Roundup committee.

Steve is a former United States Marine and graduate of CSU Chico with a degree in Ag Business, Steve has always had a passion for ranching. Raised in a ranching community and following in his Grandfather's footsteps, he knew he wanted to be an auctioneer at an early age. Steve has spent most of his life in sale barns and working cattle. Steve performs multiple sales a week for Beaverhead Livestock Auction and Montana Livestock Auction Company.

Steve resides in Southwest Montana with his wife and three children.
