Red River Chute Out Attracts Record Number of Entries

The second annual Red River Chute Out UBBI event attracted a record number of entries in 2013.  Over 100 different UBBI members participated with 209 bulls at this year’s event at the Heart of Oklahoma Expo Center in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

“It’s always exciting for us when we get the kind of entry numbers we got in Shawnee,” explained Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI.  “We want to provide a value to all of our members that will attract them and make them want to enter and participate at our events.”

A number of UBBI members traveled a long distance to compete at this year’s Red River Chute Out.  Some from as far away as New Mexico, Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Missouri and Louisiana.  The event kicked off with a Breeder’s Social featuring a complimentary dinner and presentation of the bulls on Friday afternoon followed by the Derby (3 year old bulls) at 7:30pm.  Sixty-Four bulls participated and the derby paid 12 places.  When the Oklahoma “red dirt” settled it was DAM Cattle Company’s bull #013 on top with a whopping 91.25 point score, earning a check for $3680.  Brinlee & Kilgore finished as reserve champions with their bull #-5 Live Action, posting a score of 90 points.  Finishing in the top 5 were #X72 High As a Kite from Kanngeisser Cattle Company (3rd), #700 Firebender from Trimble & Fisher (4th) and #001 Smooth Operator (5th).
