Jerry Dorenkamp TucsonJerryDorenkamp, PRCA member since 1979 and a current PRCA Gold Card holder, has been involved in rodeo all of his life both as a competitor and stock contractor.  Jerry was runner-up to the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association steer wrestling  championship in 1977. In 1986, he was 16th in the PRCA steer wrestling world standings when his career was cut short with a shoulder injury. He still finished that year in the top 25 in the world. Jerry then began to flank bucking horses and bulls rekindling the stock contractor phase of his life. For 19 years he was the livestock superintendent, chute boss and flankman at such top ranked rodeos as Denver, CO, San Antonio, TX, Houston, TX, Albuquerque, NM, Nampa, ID, Ft. Madison, IA, Sidney, IA, San Angelo, TX and Austin, TX to name a few. He has also been a flankman/stock contractor at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo almost every year from 1987 to 2017. Jerry and his wife Nancy Jane have been breeding bucking horses and bulls in Holly, CO and Tucson, AZ for over 25 years. He is currently bucking some ranch raised horses at PRCA rodeos. His breeding program includes a grandson of Calgary Stampede’s Grated Coconut who holds a record tying 6 times PRCA Bucking Horse of the Year title. Also currently on the bucking horse list are daughters of the famed Night Jacket stud from PRCA stock Contractor J Bar J Rodeo Company. Our breeding program includes Bobby Balou, who is a half brother to the 5 time PRCA World Champion Bucking Horse, Sippin Velvet.  Some of the bull bloodlines in his breeding program are Wrangle Rivets, Blueberry Wine and Oscar.
