Animal welfare group Safe wants to ban rodeo events as they believe the practice breaches animal welfare law. 

President of the New Zealand Cowboys Association Lyall Cox disputes this claim, and says events have never had any reports of pain and distress inflicted on rodeo animals. 

Simon Barnett and Tyler Adams ( filling in for James Daniels) talk to Lyall Cox about rodeos and their practices.
