In 2012, the United Bucking Bulls, Inc (UBBI) developed it’s Youth Futurity program to encourage participation among young bull owners.  UBBI Youth Members entering bulls into a UBBI sanctioned Youth Futurity must be between the age of 9 and 18 years old.  A Youth Member cannot be older than 18 years old, on the first day of January in the year in which the UBBI Youth Member applies for membership and must be at least 9 years old on the day of competition. Youth Members are required to flank their bulls, but can be assisted by an adult. Eligible Youth bulls are two year old bulls that have not won money in a standard UBBI, NBBA, ABBI or Open futurity.

Randy Schmutz, the general manager of the UBBI had this to say “We are extremely proud of our youth members and they have all done a great job this season.  The Youth events were outstanding this season and we expect next year to be even bigger!”

Forty-six different youth members competed this season with 82 different bulls at seven UBBI Youth Futurity events, including the Youth Finale.  All 46 youth participants received a custom UBBI Youth Futurity Series jacket, regardless of competing at the Youth Finale.  Buckles were awarded to the 1st place winners at each of the regular season events and to the Finale Champion as well as the Year-end Champion and Top 10 Year-end finishers.

The UBBI would like to thank all of those who donated to the Youth Awards Fund to help us present all of these awards including Kyle Wallgren, Gary Keel, Mike Sellers, Jason Matlock, David Prewitt, James Hogue, T & D Cattle, Ronnie Chism, Charlie Johsnon, Wally Barnett, Jeff Kephart, Trey King, Bobby Stallings, Larry Miller, Larry McConnell and Chute Straight Apparel.
