- Pro Rodeo Announcer
"What I love best about my Priefert equipment is knowing I'm using the absolute best to keep my family and animals safe on the ranch. All of the Priefert line is of the utmost quality, built to last, and user friendly, but at the end of the day, knowing we can rely on the products to safely handle our livestock is the number one reason I put my stock, literally, in Priefert Farm & Ranch."
Born and raised in Ellijay, Georgia, Mooney's career began by accident in 1984 when in college, he stepped in for the scheduled rodeo announcer who had a heart attack. In short time, Mooney went from being a contestant to one of the best announcers on the circuit with announcing accolades that include 2-time NFR, 5-time Calgary Stampede, 5-time Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo, 10-time High School Rodeo Finals and the Women's Professional Rodeo Association Announcer of the Year.
Unlike most rodeo announcers tucked away in the crows nest, Mooney is easily recognized horseback in the center of the arena. Mooney prefers paints, and has carried his black and white horse Flash for the past eight years. Flash watches Roger's back and keeps him out of danger when it comes to the bulls and broncs; in exchange, he knows there are always plenty of treats when he's back at the barn and might even steal a few bites of popcorn from an unsuspecting young rodeo fan.
Roger's wife, Ashley, joins in the production side of the rodeo performance providing the music and setting the atmosphere for "the greatest show on dirt". When not rodeoing, Mooney can be found in the recording studio making radio and TV commercials, raising registered Angus cattle or playing with his two kids, Cash and Morgan. You can also catch him on occasion on the Outdoor Channel and ESPN.
Priefert is proud to count Roger as one of our outstanding endorsees.
