Barrel Racing Placing Payoff: Average Round : $253,846.15
This year will mark the 32nd anniversary of the NFR in Las Vegas. The prize money for the participants this year will be $10 million.
With its increasing prize purse—especially compared to how much fewer competitors make the rest of the rodeo season—the NFR has become the biggest annual event for rodeo , to a much greater degree than the Super Bowl is for professional football and the World Series is for baseball.

Cowboys in America make an average salary of $28,326 per year or $14 per hour. The top 10 percent makes over $55,000 per year, while the bottom 10 percent under $14,000 per year.
WINNINGS: Professional cowboys can generally bring in from $40,000 to $170,000 a year. Larger rodeos hold the potential for winnings up to $100,000 , but on average a cowboy is doing a good job if he brings in $1,000 per rodeo, Hofer said.
