The McCoy family has been around the world and back. . . . .literally! And in the bucking bull business, they have been around for a long, long time! And it looks like they are going to continue to be a force in the industry! The patriarch of the family, Denny McCoy has been a supporter of the UBBI since it’s inception and he will be the first to tell you that somedays are diamonds and somedays are dirt! Lately, it’s all been diamonds for the McCoy Ranch!

Bull #TC 302 Opus, owned by McCoy Ranches won the 2015 Ante Up UBBI Futurity in Palestine, Texas on March 7th with a score of 89.75 points and earned $5,627!
