Developing Opportunities Without Limitations

Marlene Henry's "Mickey Mouse"

When the United Bucking Bulls, Inc was formulated in the fall of 2010, it’s mission statement was – Developing opportunities without limitations for all bucking bull breeders.  There’s no denying it’s done that and more.  The UBBI was organized to give breeders the opportunity to participate in uniform competitions and to bring together the top bulls from across the country to compete in an annual “Year-End” UBBI National Finals.  Probably the most unique concept, was dividing the United States into 6 different regions in order to promote participation, allowing breeders to stay closer to home in order to qualify their bulls for the UBBI National Finals. 

 

“We’re very excited about what’s happening with the UBBI and even more excited about the future of our organization,” exclaimed Randy Schmutz, the general manager of the UBBI.  “So far we’ve had 20 events in 11 different states.  That’s pretty overwhelming to think about!”

The beginning of July will mark the second half of 2011 with 12 more UBBI events on the schedule with some additional events pending.  Those events will add 5 more different states to the list including Idaho, Iowa, California, Montana and North Dakota.  The UBBI National Finals is scheduled for October 13th thru the 15th in Winnie, Texas.

In the first 6 months, the UBBI has had 1,540 entries at it’s first 20 events.  There have been almost 1200 different two, three and four year old bulls participate at UBBI competitions across the country this season and pay-outs have exceeded $568,000.

The weekend of June 17th and 18th played host to UBBI Events in Colorado, Virginia and Texas representing the Western, Southern and Eastern regions.  There were 43 three and four year old bulls in Fort Collins, Colorado, 18 three and four year olds in Manassas, Virginia and 97 two, three and four year olds in Winnie, Texas.  In Colorado, it was Harvey Bierema’s #804 Fugitive on top in the Derby (3 year old) competition winning $1814.  In the Classic (4 year old) contest, it was Mike Hadley won the event with HC-01 Bono and the Colorado breeder earned $1536.

Way out east in Virginia, the Torres brothers dominated both the Derby and Classic competition, winning both events and almost $2800.  Down south in Texas in the Futurity (2 year old) competition, Dennis Owens, Lynn Rice and Sam Wyatt partnered and brought a new bull to the Nutty Jerry’s Arena and beat 48 two year olds to earn $3454.  In the Derby, it was Miss Marlene Henry for the second month in a row with Mickey Mouse, winning $2205 and the Classic contest was won by Nothin’ But Try Ranch and the bull Air Patrick earning $2173.

This summer is going to be hot and the competition will be tough.  Check out a United Bucking Bulls, Inc event coming soon to a city near you!
