OPS Australia sponsors Cade Ferguson, who is a young cowboy based in Cloncurry. Cade’s speciality and main passion is bull riding, though he is also an excellent all round horseman. We became aware of Cade at the Longreach Road to Rodeo in May 2022 where we were a proud sponsor of the event. Andrew, CEO of OPS Australia, saw Cade during the Rodeo and was impressed by his skills. He felt that Cade was a great fit for OPS, as he showed many values that align with OPS and what the company is wanting to achieve.
Cade won the 2023 Australian Professional Rodeo Association (APRA) junior bull ride category. This is a significant achievement for this emerging talent. To achieve this result, in the last year Cade has attended over 60 rodeos, ridden over 150 bulls across NSW, VIC, SA, TAS and also within the USA. Not mentioning travelling countless distance to and from these events. These stats show the dedication that Cade and his family apply to perusing this dream. Great job Cade!
The development of rural Australia relied heavily on the horse and horse handling skills, so sponsoring Cade is somehow a nod to our past.
OPS is helping Cade meet his objective of rising up in the Australian and International Rodeo arena. Follow OPS Australia on social media to receive regular updates of Cade’s travel and achievements.
Additionally, Cade has great technical skills and works casually within OPS whenever he can. Cade performs a wide variety of technical work including building and testing modules and configuring electronic circuit boards. Cade is a great technical allrounder. We are excited to support Cade in his rodeo career as well as harbour his passion for the technical work within ag-tech.
