UBBI National Finals Qualifiers have been determined by money won.  The Top 30 bulls ranked Nationally and the top 20 bulls ranked Regionally, created by 4 bulls from each of 5 Regions (excludes the Southern Region) will make up the Top 50 bulls competing in each category.

Entry fees in the Futurity, Derby and Classic are $1,000 and will be paid back 100%.  With 50 entries in each category, the Finals will pay 12 places, awarding $10,000 to 1st place and $1,500 to 12th place.  Buckles will be awarded to the World Champions, Finals Champions, Go-Round Winners and the Top 12 in the Futurity, Derby and Classic events.  Each of the National Finals Champions will receive a $10,000 dollar bonus!  National Finals qualifier will also receive a unique UBBI National Finals jacket and tickets to see three marquee entertainers.  The entertainment line-up includes country music singer Chris Young, rock and rollers Bad Company and country music legend Don Williams.

The weekends activities will include a Welcome Reception and Presentation of the Bulls at the UBBI National Finals and two luncheons including the UBBI National Finals Awards Banquet on Saturday afternoon.

“It’s been an exiting road to the UBBI National Finals and we are extremely pleased with this year’s season,” exclaimed Randy Schmutz, General Manager for the United Bucking Bulls, Inc.  “Jerry Nelson and Jimmy Ray stepped up and put something together that everyone could enjoy and a lot of breeders took advantage of what the UBBI had to offer!”

The 2011 UBBI season hosted 32 events in 15 different states including New Mexico, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, North and South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Virginia.  With almost 700 members, there were 1431 different two, three and four year old bulls entered into UBBI sanctioned and co-sanctioned events 2609 different times this season.  Regular season payouts exceeded $960,000 and with the UBBI National Finals, total earnings paid back to UBBI breeders will surpass  $1.1 million dollars in it’s first year!

Big plans and some big announcements are in the works for 2012 season and the UBBI hopes to sustain continued growth and give bucking bull breeders even more of what they want next year!

“Jimmy Ray and I want to thank all the breeders who have supported the UBBI this year,” stated Jerry Nelson, co-owner of the UBBI.  “Without the bucking bull breeders there would be no bucking bulls and there certainly would be no UBBI.”

It’s always been and will always be “About U the Breeder!”
