For Jeff and Joe Bertus, brotherly love goes along with rodeo.
The brothers are both bull riders, and are good at it, too; both are ranked in pro rodeo‚Äôs regional standings for the Dakotas, the Badlands Circuit, as No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.
They grew up in Avon, S.D., with Jeff the elder brother by two years. After

‚ÄúWe thought it was the coolest thing in the world,‚ÄĚ Joe said.
