UBBI Kicks Off 2014 Season With Record Number of Entries

The 2014 season for the United Bucking Bulls, Inc kicks off Palestine, Texas on January 31st with a record number of entries!  Last year, this event featured 43 Futurity, 30 Derby and 38 Classic bulls for a total of 111 entries to start off the 2013 campaign.  This year’s inaugural event attracted 106 Futurity, 74 Derby and 42 Classic bulls for a total of 222 bulls!

“We are extremely excited about the 2014 season,” expressed Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI.  “The number of entries at our first event of the season says to us that our members are excited, too!  The staff at the UBBI office has worked hard to create an organization that listens to it’s members, provides competitive opportunities and then creates value for it’s participants.  It’s always been about the ‘breeder’ and it always will be!  Without them, we would not exist!”

At the first event of the season, we will be unveiling our new regular season event Tres Rios Silver Championship buckles.  These buckles will be awarded to the winners of our regular season Futurity, Derby & Classic event champions.  The UBBI will be hosting a Breeder Social with complimentary dinner, a Membership Meeting and Calcutta at 4pm on Friday, January 31st.  These activities will all be held inside the Anderson County Livestock Pavillion following the completion of bull check-in.

“I encourage everyone to attend, even those that aren’t participating at this event,” explained Schmutz.  “We’ve got some exciting announcements to make and we want to discuss some rule changes for the 2014 season.”

Some of the exciting news includes the expansion of the UBBI Youth Futurity program to include scholarship opportunities this year.  The UBBI will also be adding the Rhinestone Renegades UBBI Women’s Futurity Series and the ‘Ante Up UBBI Futurity’, a new and larger regular season Futurity on March 8th in Palestine, Texas.

Jimmy Ray, co-owner of the UBBI said, “Members have asked that we create a larger paying futurity that would count toward the Futurity World Standings.  The Gold Standard Futurity and Double Down Futurity earnings don’t count toward the standings because these are closed futurities!”

Th ‘Ante Up UBBI Futurity’ event will have a $900 entry fee, which is double the regular season entry fee.  With 150 entries the projected payout would be $12,500; $10,500 and $7,500 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.  The event would pay 30 places and money won at this event will count toward the UBBI World Standings.
