The United Bucking Bulls, Inc is pleased to announce the addition of the 2012 UBBI Youth Futurity Series. The series will include 3 youth futurities, all in conjunction with the Anderson County Battle of the Bull events in Palestine, Texas in June, July and August.
“We’ve really wanted to do something for the youth breeders in our industry,” explained Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI. “The timing is right and we felt it would be a plus to do all 3 Youth Futurities during the summer months while the kids were out of school.”
UBBI Youth Members must be between the ages of 9 and 18 to participate and must be present to flank their bulls. Eligible bulls will be 2 year olds that have not won money at a standard UBBI, NBBA, ABBI or Open Futurity. Bulls that have won money at UBBI, NBBA, ABBI or Open Youth Futurities are eligible to participate. Entry fees will be $275 and participant must a UBBI Youth Member in good standing. Youth membership dues are $50 each year.
The winner at each event will not only receive a prize money check, but also a Tres Rios Silver Championship buckle. Additional “series” awards will be announced soon. Entries for the first youth event will open on May 7th and close on May 21st.
