Davie Kimm was raised on the family farm in Lakeville, MN. His rodeo career started when he joined the Minnesota High School Rodeo Association in 1981. During High School Rodeo competition he rode bareback horses, saddle broncs and roped calves. Davie was the reserve state champion saddle bronc rider for Minnesota in 1982, and he qualified for the National High School Rodeo Finals in Douglas, WY.
In 1986 Davie joined the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (P.R.C.A.) and he qualified as a saddle bronc rider for the Great Lakes Circuit Finals Rodeo in Louisville, KY in 1987, '88, '89, and '92. He retired from competition in October 1994. Occasionally riding until early 2000 when injuries forced him to stop.
Davie's announcing career began in 1989 when he announced his first rodeo filling in for a no show announcer. The following year he began announcing High School rodeos in Minnesota and Wisconsin. He attended Sam Howry's Rodeo Academy, a school for professional rodeo announcers in Oklahoma City, OK. Since then Davie has worked high school, college, amateur, and professional rodeos and bull ridings that stretch from the upper Midwest to northern Alberta Canada.
Now calling Box Elder, SD home, Davie and his wife Nicky (who handles rodeo music production) travel throughout the upper Midwest and Canada. His insight as a past contestant and his mid-west work ethic has helped him become one of the most exciting and sought after voices in the PRCA. You will find Davie at many professional rodeos through out the upper midwest.
