Taste the West at the Rendezvous City Beef Round-up

RIVERTON, Wyo. — If you want a true taste of Wyoming, you have to bite into its beef.

It’s a staple Wyoming dish, because Wyoming prides itself on its locally-raised cattle. Taste it for yourself at Central Wyoming College’s Rendezvous City Beef Round-Up Saturday, Aug. 28 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
