The McCoy Ranch bulls had a lot of success on Friday, with Cord McCoy/K-C Bucking Bulls placing 3rd with #387 Call the Law, Denny McCoy’s bull #302 Opus placed 5th and Cord McCoy/Kevin Graber’s bull #307 Ice Breaker placing just out of the money.

The Derby & Classic bulls were all bucked on Friday night and the Rank Bull Rider Tour attracted 44 bull riders. With 58 total Derby & Classic bulls, there was a 44 man long round and 14 man championship round. The Derby & Classic bulls were scored separately, but there was no denying the Classic bulls had their own bit of charisma. The Classic bulls are bigger, stronger, smarter and more experienced and it shows. There were 22 four year olds competing for top honors and the event paid 4 places. Bull #81Z Shot Gun from D&H Cattle Co/Milton Smith had an 89.25 point outing to win the event and $2530 and a Tres Rios Silver buckle! High View Cattle Company’s bull #212 Locke & Loaded

produced an 88.75 score for second place finish. Bull #210 Chao’s Ghost from 3J Bucking Bulls finished 3rd with 87.75 points and finishing 4th was Ray Cattle Company’s bull #274 Blood Brother.

The Futurity was packed with lots of excitement, including the opportunity to win a brand new Polaris Ranger UTV from Grapevine Kawasaki~Polaris and Sycamore Springs Ranch. This year’s Spring Spectacular also included the UBBI’s first United Futurity League (UFL) team competition of the 2016 season. There were 99 two year olds participating at the Spring Spectacular with 86 bulls entered into the UBBI’S Open Futurity. Of the 60 UFL Team bulls, 47 also participated in the open futurity event.

“The UFL Team events are always very exciting,” shared Randy Schmutz. “This

unique team concept gives members a chance to team 3 bulls together and their accumulative scores win. The top 6 of 20 teams earn money with first place winning $15,000!”

It wasn’t until late in the futurity that we saw an 87 plus points bull. In fact, bull#450B Striker from Halpain/Thompson was the fourth from the last bull to perform and posted a score of 89.25 points to win the open event and $4257. Bull #411 Pat’s Pride from Stormy Foster/Terry Williams continued his winning ways to place 2nd with a score of 89 points. In third place was bull #263 from Mike Sellers posting a score of 88.75 points and finishing in 4th place was bull #81B Olaf from D&H Cattle Company scoring 88.5 points.

Other members placing in the top 10 were Tom Peterson & Peggy VanCleve; James Hogue/Chase Foutch; BS Cattle Co/Jack & Dot Verbois; Bland Bucking Bulls and D&H Cattle. With 86 entries the event paid 17 places.

The “new” Silver Select payout is now being used in all regular season UBBI Futurity events. Adding $50 to the futurity entry fee with 86 entries created a $4300 Silver Select payout (paid back 100%). After the Top 17 bulls were paid, the next 13 placing bulls earned their share of the $4300 Silver Select purse. The first 4 places in the Silver Select were tied with a score of 86.25 points. Bull #481B from D&H Cattle Co; bull #53B Not My Child form BS Cattle Co/Bob & Jeri Adams; bull #830 GDY 830 from Scott Cattle Co/Guidry Land & Cattle and bull #77B Medicine Man from Rockin R Bucking Bulls all earned $537.

At the conclusion of the Futurity and with a tie for 10th and 11th place, the Top 11 Futurity winners were placed into a drawing to win the Polaris Ranger. Each of the Top 11 drew for a position. Once positions were determined each winner randomly drew for a key to start the Polaris Ranger. HD Page & D&H Cattle Company placed with 3 bulls in the Top 11 and had 3 opportunities to win the UTV. HD Page drew the 3rd and 4th place position and on HD’s 1st attempt the UTV did not crank. But on his second attempt with the 4th place key the Polaris Ranger roared to life and HD Page took home the new machine valued at over $11,000. Thanks once again to Aaron McWhorter, owner of Grapevine Kawasaki~Polaris and Jerry Rush with Sycamore Springs Ranch for sponsoring this tremendous award!

Every member entering a bull received a UBBI Spring Spectacular ball cap and the Top 5 in each event also received a custom award vest. And everyone is already talking about the 13th Annual Spring Spectacular in 2017!

12th Annual Spring Spectacular Adds Grand Prize

March 22nd, 2016

Ranger slide

For the 12th year in a row, the Spring Spectacular Futurity~Derby~Classic will get the month of April kicked off in a BIG way on April 1st and 2nd! This is the second year for the event to be held at Sycamore Springs Ranch in Locust Grove, Oklahoma!

“It’s amazing to me that it’s been 12 years,” stated Randy Schmutz, the general manager of the UBBI. “When Amber and I started the Spring Spectacular in 2005, it was simply to try and build on the foundation and hard work that Bob Tallman began with the Rodeo Stock Registry and the Buckers, Inc! We’re proud that it has been successful and continues to grow!”

This year, the UBBI together with Grapevine Kawasaki~Polaris and Sycamore Springs Ranch will give away a new Polaris Ranger 570 UTV valued at over $11,000! All UBBI participants entered into the Spring Spectacular Open Futurity are eligible to win. The Top 10 placing futurity bulls will be entered into a random drawing. Ten ignition keys will be placed into a bucket and each owner of the Top 10 bulls will randomly select a key. The member with the key that starts the Polaris Ranger will win it!

“This is gonna be really exciting! And add a unique value to this year’s Spring Spectacular Futurity,” explained Schmutz. “If you enter 6 bulls and 3 of them place in the Top 10, you’ll have 3 chances to win! Literally the 10th placing bull could drive away in a brand new Polaris Ranger from Grapevine Kawasaki~Polaris and Sycamore Springs Ranch!”

In addition to the regular season Futurity, Derby and Classic, this year’s event will once again host the first United Futurity League (UFL) competition of the 2016 season. Twenty futurity bull teams will be competing for $40,000! UFL team bulls may also be entered individually into the open futurity and be eligible to win the Polaris Ranger! Team bulls entered into the open futurity will buck once for 2 scores and be eligible for prize money in both competitions. The UBBI will once again roll out the red carpet with it’s Spring Spectacular Breeders Social and complimentary dinner and calcutta on Friday (April 1st) at 4pm.  The Top 10 in each event will receive a Spring Spectacular award jacket and the winner in each event will also win a Tres Rios Silver Championship Buckle.

Futurity entry fees are $500 and the event will feature the “new” Silver Select payout! Fifty dollars of the $500 entry fee will go into the Silver Select payout and will be paid back 100%. For example, at a futurity with 60 bulls entered, we will continue to pay 1 place for every 5 bulls entered, thus the top 12 placing bulls would earn a check toward qualifying for the UBBI National Finals. The forty-eight remaining bulls would be eligible for the Silver Select payout (60 bulls x $50 = $3,000 paid 100%). Dividing those 48 bulls, 1 place for every 5 bulls, the Silver Select would then pay the next 9 bulls. A 60 head futurity will pay 12 places plus 9 places in the Silver Select payout for a total of 21 places paid. Silver Select winnings will NOT count as qualifier dollars toward UBBI National Finals or UBBI Futurity World Title.

“I’d like to thank Aaron McWhorter, the owner of Grapevine Kawasaki~Polaris and Jerry Rush, the owner of Sycamore Springs Ranch for supporting the 2016 Spring Spectacular,” explained Randy Schmutz. “Aaron and Jerry both are a part of the bucking bull family and strong supporters of our industry!”

Entries are OPEN now and will close Friday, March 25th. Click HERE for entry details!

UBBI Members Supporting UBBI Competition

March 9th, 2016

UBBIStockPhotoFor the third consecutive year, the UBBI hosted it’s Ante Up Futurity in Palestine, Texas on March 5th. This event also featured the first of a 6 UBBI Youth Futurity competitions. The event attracted 48 open and 47 youth entries.

“The Ante Up Futurity was developed to offer an “increased” entry fee and a larger pay-back for our UBBI members,” stated Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI. “Ante Up entry fees were doubled from our normal $450 fee to $900, and each Ante Up event has paid back 65%!”

In 2014, the first Ante Up Futurity attracted 54 entries and paid back $6,950. In 2015, entry numbers fell to 37 and in 2016 entry numbers fell even lower.

“I believe the data proves that the majority of our members are more willing to risk less and enter more bulls into our competitions. In other words, a lower entry fee creates more participation,” explained Schmutz. “I also believe that the increased number of bucking bull events and places to compete has added to the decrease in entry numbers. Increasing the entry fee to $900 has obviously kept some folks from entering, so we decided to lower the entry fee in 2016 to $500.”

Entry fees were lowered and the entry deadline was extended and ultimately we had 48 bulls entered. After entries closed, the UBBI staff learned that a number of members got together and decided to raise some additional money for the Ante Up purse. Their motivation was to reward those who decided to participate at this year’s Ante Up event instead of choosing to enter and compete elsewhere. Ultimately those members raised and donated an additional $5,000 to the purse! The additional $5,000 was added to the purse and paid back 100%!

“It’s no secret there are more places and more opportunities to compete with bulls than there ever has been,” stated Jimmy Ray, co-owner of the UBBI. “It was a bit overwhelming to see a group of our members take it upon themselves to help increase the purse and add $5,000! But it also shows how important the UBBI is to them! And we wanna especially thank those who put this added money together for this event!”

Randy Schmutz explained, “The UBBI has and will always use a portion of the entry fees to pay the bills and produce the events. Without entries our ability to provide these competitions becomes very limited. If members who have supported our events in the past chose to go somewhere else instead and entries continue to decline, the number of events on our schedule will also decline. The UBBI has always maintained a ‘value in return’ policy for what is taken from the member’s entry fee. In other words, that money is used to sustain this organization, rent the venues, provide the equipment, pay for the personnel, provide awards and produce a top notch year-end finals! If what we take equals or surpasses what we provide in return, then we’ve accomplished our goal. But without the member and without the entries, the ability to provide these things greatly diminishes!”

The UBBI enters it’s 6th year in 2016, and from the beginning it’s motto has been “It’s About You the Breeder”, but without the breeder participating there is no UBBI!

UBBI Implements New Silver Select Payout for Futurity Events

March 9th, 2016

silver select

The United Bucking Bulls, Inc has always been on the cutting edge of new ideas to enhance the bucking bull industry! The Gold Standard Futurity & Black Gold Derby were the first events to offer ownership in positions to compete for bigger purses! The Wayne Hodges 4 Star Trailers Futurity Super Series offers additional bonus money and the use of a new aluminum trailer! In keeping with those cutting edge ideas, the UBBI has announced it’s new Silver Select Futurity payout.

“We’re excited about this new Silver Select payout,” stated Randy Schmutz, the general manager of the UBBI. “It adds to the number of paid positions at every UBBI Futurity event (except the Gold Standard & UFL futurities) and gives a larger number of participants a chance to win money!”

Entry fees at regular season UBBI futurity events will increase from $450 to $500 for the remainder of the 2016 season. The $50 will create the Silver Select payout and be paid back 100%!

For example, at a futurity with 60 bulls entered, we will continue to pay 1 place for every 5 bulls entered, thus the top 12 placing bulls would earn a check toward qualifying for the UBBI National Finals. The forty-eight remaining bulls would be eligible for the Silver Select payout (60 bulls x $50 = $3,000 paid 100%). Dividing those 48 bulls, 1 place for every 5 bulls, the Silver Select would then pay the next 9 bulls. Silver Select winnings will NOT count as qualifier dollars toward UBBI National Finals or UBBI Futurity World Title.

“This is another way for members to enter and win with bulls that are just out of those regular paid positions,” explained Schmutz. “I’m confident this adds value to our futurity system and keeps it simple for everyone to understand and also provides a return to more of our members!”

The Silver Select payout will begin at the Boston Porter Memorial Bull Riding UBBI event in Palestine, Texas on March 18-19.
