Grand Marshall Bio
 

Lucky Gravette

Lucky best exhibits the true western spirit of our local ranching community and our rodeo.  Lucky has lived in the Livermore Valley for over 50 years, raising cattle, training young horses, shoeing horses, and participating in the Livermore Rodeo.  He is a past president of the Alameda Contra Costa Cattlemen's Association, and has held positions on committees for the California Cattlemen's Association.  Lucky has been a mentor and guidance to many young cowboys and rodeo riders starting their careers.  His knowledge of the cattle industry and his animal care practices have always been above the norm.  He participates in the annual Cattle Penning and Mixer on Wednesday evenings of rodeo week.  You will always find him roping on Thursday which is Family Night and at the Saturday or Sunday rodeo performance with local team ropers.  He now ropes with his son and grandson on his team.

During branding season Lucky is helping his fellow neighbor ranchers with vaccinating and branding their calves.  Those same ranchers reciprocate helping him.  He is always there to lend a hand.  He is always a gracious gentleman who takes great interest in the youth of our industry hoping to preserve the Cowboy Way.
