“We believe that bull owners have recognized the value offered in what the UBBI is doing,” exclaimed Randy Schmutz, the general manager of the UBBI.  “We’ve always set out to treat our members the way we’d wanna be treated and we feel that our participants have enjoyed and embraced the professionalism the UBBI and it’s staff have provided!”

There were 51 Derby bulls waiting in the wings to participate at the 3rd Annual Bar B Arena UBBI event in Mineral Wells, Texas! When all was said and done, it was the little bull that could, that did it this time.  Bull #626 Hard Time from Moss Brothers was 1st place with a phenomenal score of 91.75 points, earning $3225. Hard Time was the 2013 UBBI National Finals Futurity Champion, winning the Finals event and over $20,000 at the Kansas Star Casino & Arena and totaling over $25,000 in earnings last season as a two year old. Looks like he’s off to a great start as as Derby contender this year!
