Bulls are not required to be ABBI registered to participate in UBBI Futurity, Derby or Classic events. We encourage breeders to register their cattle with the ABBI, age verify and EID tag their bulls to add value to their cattle and make them eligible to compete in ABBI sanctioned and other events.
If your bulls are not EID tagged and age verified and bulls are not NBBA validated, we encourage you to have your bulls made “Age Eligible” by a UBBI approved Veterinarian in your area prior to competition. UBBI uses the ABBI approved mouth chart (L. Man Cropsey, DVM Golden, Colorado). If bull is over 34 months of age, Veterinarians will use the UBBI approved mouth chart, for 3 and 4 year old bulls, as set forth by Dr. Ames, DVM and Professor at Michigan State University.
The UBBI will encourage event producers to keep entry fees reasonable while providing breeders with an opportunity to win as much money as possible. We suggest entry fees of not less than $300 and not more than $1,000. Specialty events may have a higher entry fee and will be listed in the Entry Details.
Production Drag – Not more than 25% may be deducted from total entry fee
