Three times the voice at the Ram Turquoise Circuit Finals and four times selected to announce the prestigious Benny Benion bucking horse and bull sale during the Wrangler National Finals, Dan Fowlie, the voice of this year’s Yuma Jaycees Silver Spur Rodeo is familiar to rodeo competitors and fans alike. Dan, a contestant himself rodeoed his way through college at Eastern Arizona College in Thatcher, competing in the steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc and bull riding events. Dan began announcing at rodeos to subsidize his fees as a contestant. Although he still competes in the team roping. An injury in the steer wrestling in 1998 allowed him to refocus his rodeo efforts and channel his talent to the announcer stand.
Dan has an outstanding overall resource of experiences to call upon while covering the exciting sport of professional rodeo. Some of the great ProRodeo venues Dan has annually announced are PRCA rodeos like Rodeo de Santa Fe, Buckeye AZ’s Helzapoppin Rodeo, Queen Creek Roots & Boots, Cave Creek AZ’s WWM PRCA Rodeo, Breckenridge CO, Steamboat Springs, CO, Safford AZ, 2012, 2013 and 2016 RAM Turquoise Circuit Finals, in addition to great rodeos such as Sonoita, AZ, Gilbert Days, Plymouth CA, Truckee CA, and Rodeo Alaska as well as over 1000 performances in his 20+ year career.
Dan and his wife Annette, enjoy spending time with their 4 children competing at rodeos and raising horned cattle for use in the rodeo industry.
