The roping accomplishments of Campbellford, Ontario, resident Brad Heffernan include the Dodge Rodeo Tour Championship in 2001, Ontario Roping Association Champion in 2002, Terry Dunk Memorial Roping Champion in 2008 and 2009, and strong showings at the American Quarter Horse Congress in 2005 and 2007.
Fuelling the explosive burst of speed necessary for a successful roping horse isn't something Heffernan trusts to any feed other than a Brooks feed.
"I know I drive past several feed stores from my farm to buy Brooks feed," Heffernan said, "but I believe my horses need the concentrated energy in Phase III to be at their best. I love this sport and my horses. It's in my blood. I know that a Brooks feed is the best there is so I won't use anything else."
