The case is expected to continue for the next several months as COOL opponents have appealed a court decision to deny a preliminary injunction against the rule.
While several of the upcoming tour stops will be in Montana, Peterson says interest is also growing outside the northern plains, and USCA has received online contributions and assistance from organizations in Virginia, Washington and Texas.
The event schedule is as follows:
Tues. Oct. 22: Lewistown Livestock Market, Lewistown, Mont.; Rollover sale (noon)
Tuesday, Oct. 22: Heavy Horse Bar; Roberts, Mont.; Burgers and COOL update (6 p.m.)
