UBBI will provide event administrative assistance to Open Events and Associations allowing them to provide uniform and quality competitions.

Bulls that are ABBI registered and/or EID tagged and age verified will be accepted for UBBI competition.
If your bulls are not EID tagged and age verified, 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.
Please contact the UBBI office for if you have questions above age verifying bulls for competition. All bulls are subject to being mouthed on-site at an event, at the discretion of UBBI management.
UBBI membership is from January 1st thru December 31st of each year. Breeders can renew or purchase a UBBI membership for $100, before March 31st of each year. UBBI membership dues go up $25 each quarter if not purchased before March 31st. All Breeders purchasing a membership in 2011, will be “charter” members and their dues will not increase as long as they renew each year and pay their dues before March 31st. After 2011 and beyond UBBI membership fees are subject to change.
The UBBI will strive to keep entry fees reasonable while providing breeders with an opportunity to win as much money as possible. Entry fees vary from $275 for Youth Futurity participants to $1350 for the UBBI National Finals. Entry fees will be event specific and posted in Entry Details.

The UBBI Finals will be held at the completition of the regular season each year. The top 50 Bulls, based on money won in each of the Futurity, Derby and Classic competitions will qualify. When your bulls are bucked in your Region, and win money, that money will be added to both your Regional and National Standings. The top 30 Bulls ranked Nationally and the top 4 Bulls from each of 5 Regions (20 Bulls) will qualify. Regional qualification excludes the Southern Region. Finals Entry Fees will be paid back 100%.
