My name is Katie McDougald. I am a 19 year-old sophomore at Fresno State majoring in Animal Science with the intent of pursuing a career in range management. Born in Clovis and raised on my family’s cattle ranch in O’Neals, my life has always involved riding horses and working cattle, which led to my passion for rodeo. Crowned Miss Coarsegold Rodeo Queen in 2014, I travelled the state representing my community. My high school FFA experience included a Natural Resources Team State Championship and earning an American FFA Degree. Currently, I am a member of the Fresno State Rodeo Team and Young Cattlemen’s Association. My interests in horses, cattle, and rodeo have led to my involvement in and advocacy of the western lifestyle. I have been attending the Clovis Rodeo my entire life and it is an honor to represent this historic California rodeo as “Miss Clovis Rodeo”.
