30+ Years as "Pro Rodeo’s Rockin’est Show!"

Owner of Bad Company Rodeo, Mack Altizer is a ranch cowboy and has been around livestock all of his life. That background is complemented by his love for competition and experience in the rodeo arena. He is a second generation rodeo competitor that started in the American Junior Rodeo Association (AJARA) and the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA). He also served as student president in both associations. Innovation and setting trends started early for Altizer. While in the NIRA, he helped negotiate taking the College National Finals Rodeo to Bozeman, Montana. That was the beginning of growth for college rodeo that continues today.

Mack continues to compete on the professional level as a member or the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and the United States Team Roping Championships (USTRC). As a competitor, he understands what it takes for today’s rodeo contestants to go down the road and is always looking for ways to make his events better and more profitable for the contestants. His ranch and rodeo background gives him the knowledge and desire to always seek out better livestock to keep the competition more even and fair for every contestant.

All of those experiences have contributed to Bad Company Rodeo’s success and are setting a path for the future. They also helped Altizer start one of the premier bucking bull breeding programs in the industry under Rodeo Ranch Genetics. With sires like RockNRoll, Copenhagen Wild Thing, Satan’s Own, Hammer Time Tequila, Maniac and Walk This Way, who first had success in the arena and now are proven sires, the next generation of Bad Company Rodeo bucking bulls is making a name for themselves. Those genetics are also being utilized by other bucking bull breeders when they purchase semen out of Rodeo Ranch Genetics sires. Bad Company Rodeo is taking their progress further through the “Who’s Your Daddy” junior bull riding series, giving you bull riders the opportunity to test their metal against the young bulls.

Sixteen time national Finals Rodeo Announcer; Boyd Polhamus stated “Bad Company Rodeo is the most awards winning Stock Contracting Company in the industry…” In 1998, Bad Company Rodeo received the coveted “Stock Contractor of the Year” award from the PRCA for his efforts with Bad Company Rodeo. 1999 and 2000 followed up with Stock Contractor of the Year Awards from the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) and the Professional Women’s Rodeo Associations (PWRA). Bad Company Rodeo is also the only PRCA Stock Contractor to provide livestock for every competition event at the PRCA’s World Championship events – the National Finals Rodeo and the National Finals Steer Roping. Adding to the list of accomplishments Mack was inducted in the Texas Hall of Fame in 2010.

The Company’s business ventures have changed since then and while they may have not been producing as many rodeos the past couple of years, the qualities that earned them the title are still in place. “We are excited about the future,” Altizer said. “We’re focused on raising our own animals and we have some young bulls and horses and have the potential to be outstanding.”

The Bad Company Rodeo stock has already made appearances and impressions in 2013! Cowboys have won rounds in the Bareback, Saddle Bronc and Bull Riding on Bad Company Rodeo stock at the major stock shows in Fort Worth, San Angelo and Houston. Bad Company Rodeo has not only been present at the PRCA rodeos but produced several NIRA Rodeos this year and won 2nd place with a Bull Team at the Stan Ham Memorial Bull Riding in Odessa!
