In the Cowboy Capital of the World, a powerful brand of global performance.

Every year, more than 600 cowboys and cowgirls from all across the U.S. and as far away as New Zealand converge in Stephenville, Texas for the World Pro Rodeo, where the American Hero night was initiated in honor of local hero Chris Kyle, legendary Navy Seal, author and the subject of Clint Eastwood’s award-winning film American Sniper. Kyle graduated from Stephenville’s Tarleton State University, where animal science degrees turn out graduates ready to ride herd on today’s modern ranges. In other words, the Cowboy life is serious business in Stephenville—tough, strong, loyal and with a tremendous work ethic.

That cowboy character and work ethic are only part of the reason why every day global industry across a diverse range of sectors enjoys greater success here in Stephenville.
