Thursday, April 27th, 2017

On Wednesday, April 26th the United Bucking Bulls, Inc and American Bucking Bull, Inc announced that the remaining UBBI Open Futurity events would be co-sanctioned with the ABBI, including the upcoming Gold Standard Futurity on May 13th. This will allow participants at UBBI futurity events with ABBI registered bulls to compete and pay an additional $50 fee to count points toward qualifying their 2 year old bulls for the ABBI World Finals in Las Vegas.

With this additional co-sanction incentive, the UBBI has waived ALL late penalties for entry into the Gold Standard Futurity and Black Gold Derby. ALL owners of two and three year old bulls that wish to compete in these events simply have to execute an entry form and and name their bulls on or before Monday, May 1st. Non-UBBI members can purchase a 2017 membership and also compete.

“Originally, we announced that in order to compete at this year’s Gold Standard Futurity and Black Gold Derby, you must submit a 50% of your entry fee as a deposit to the UBBI office on or before April 3rd,” stated Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI. “So far to date, we have recieved just over 100 Futurity entries and almost 70 Derby entries! And we’d like more, so we’re gonna waive late penalties this year!”

With 150 Futurity entries, the Gold Standard Futurity will pay $50,000 for first place and pay 30 places. And with 100 three year old entries, the Black Gold Derby will pay $25,000 for first place and pay 25 places.

United Bucking Bulls, Inc Announce Co-Sanction Agreement with ABBI

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

The United Bucking Bulls Inc. (UBBI) announced today that the rest of the 2017 UBBI Open Futurity events will be co-sanctioned with the American Bucking Bull, Inc (ABBI).

“Were always interested in finding ways to add more value to our events for our membership,” stated Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI. “Now our members with ABBI registered bulls can take advantage of our co-sanctioned futurity events! It’s a win, win for everybody!”

ABBI Futurity Points determine which animals will earn regular season bonuses and awards and it is also how animals qualify for the ABBI World Finals in Las Vegas. All UBBI Open Futurity events from this point forward in the 2017 season will be co-sanctioned. UBBI members with ABBI registered bulls will simply pay the ABBI’s standard $50 co-sanctioning fee and UBBI results will count toward the animal’s ABBI standings.

“We have been actively trying to work with as many organizations as possible this year in order to benefit our members,” said ABBI Executive Director Jay Daugherty. “We have many stock contractors who also compete with UBBI, so this is a way those registered animals can also earn points with us and it makes it so our members have more places and dates to compete that fit their schedule.”

The co-sanctioned events are as follows:

UBBI Gold Standard Futurity Ada, OK May 13

UBBI Battle of the Bull Futurity Palestine, TX June 17
