The UBBI Futurity Silver Select Payout Will Continue in 2017

November 2nd, 2016

silver-select2017The 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, in 2017 the UBBI will continue with it’s Silver Select Futurity payout.

“In 2016 we introduced the new Silver Select payout and members really liked it,” 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 below the normal qualifier payout!”

Entry fees at 2017 regular season UBBI futurity events are $500 and $50 from each entry fee will create 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 then 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 an additional 9 places. Silver Select winnings do NOT count as qualifier dollars toward UBBI National Finals or UBBI Futurity World Title.

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

Dove Fest UBBI Event Kicks Off 2017 Season

November 2nd, 2016

dove-fest-2016-slideThe UBBI concluded it’s season on October 8th with the last performance of the 2016 UBBI National Finals in Ada, Oklahoma and started it’s 2017 campaign only two weeks later.

The first event of the new year was hosted by Cody Ohl in Hamilton, Texas at the prestigious Circle T Arena. Most people know Ohl as PRCA World Champion Calf Roper, but he has become a notable bucking bull owner as well.

“Cody has been involved with bucking bulls for quite a long time,” explained Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI. “He owned the 2009 ABBI World Champion Futurity Bull, Pure Smoke and has number of bulls featured on the PBR Tour each year!”

The Dove Fest UBBI Shoot Out hosted a pre-futurity event for the up and coming 2017 UBBI Futurity standouts and gave everyone a sneak peek at what we can expect out of this new group of bulls. Twenty-one 2015 born bulls took the stage and bull #51-Sunshine Whiskey owned by Barrett/Willis posted an 86.5 point score to win first place and $1890. In second was Tomaski Rodeo Co/Travis Fowler’s bull #55 Madi’s Habanero with a score of 86 points. Finishing in third place was #X62 Hangman from Terry Coleman and in fourth place was bull #C16 Foul Ball, with a score of 85 points, from Rockin R Bucking Bulls.

The Classic featured a number of familiar 3 year old bulls about to enter their 4 year old season of competition. Money won at this event counts toward crowning our 2017 UBBI Classic World Champioin.

Pritchett/Melton Bull Company’s bull #9A was only hauled on a limited basis last season as a 3 year old and did not earn any UBBI cash, but he changed all that by breaking out for his 4 year old campaign by winning 1st place and $2645 with a score of 87.75 points. In second place, was a new bull to the UBBI tour owned by Clay Taylor. Bull #909 Runaway Train posted a score of 87 points. Barker Bulls from New Mexico brought bull #313 Space Jam to Texas and returned to the Land of Enchantment with a 3rd place win and a score of 86.5 points. And finishing in 4th place #317 Big Crush from Carl & Gayla Dunlap, posting an 86 point outing.

It’s hard to believe that the 2017 season is underway, but we already have a race in the Classic competition!

Locke & Loaded Wins Big at UBBI National Finals

October 14th, 2016

It’s been said that patience is a virtue! To have patience in the bucking bull industry is indeed a quality and at times patience does pay off! Gary and Nedra Keel, have been waiting for this moment for a long time and it almost didn’t happen.

“We bought the bull from Johnny and David Locke as a two year old and partnered with Kyle Walgren,” explained Gary Keel. “We entered him in the UBBI Gold Standard Futurity that year and split 4th and 5th place with him, but he got hurt there and had a severe hip injury!”

Keel was not optimistic that he would recover and Walgren agreed to let him keep

the bull to breed with and move on. During his three year old year, Locke & Loaded was bucked a limited amount of times and showed promise.  But in 2016, Keel put the bull on the road and the rest is history!

$4094 behind the leader, bull #Z26 Acting Crazy from Martinez Bucking Bulls. In the first round, Locke & Loaded performed well and posted a score of 87 points to finish 7th on Friday night.

With the highest marked bull score of the entire finals, Locke & Loaded put up a score of 90 points, for a total of 177 points to place 2nd in the aggregate and earn $8500 in Finals cash! That moved Locke & Loaded to the #1 spot in the UBBI Classic standings, with a total of $12,525 and $925 ahead of D&H Cattle/Flinn’s Sketchy Bob and $1406 ahead of Martinez

participation from 2015 to 2016. Almost 60 different youth members participated in 2016 at 5 regular season events and the Youth Futurity Series Finale with 105 different youth eligible bulls! What’s interesting about these numbers is the fact that the UBBI Youth Futurity rules only allow each member to enter and participate with no more than 2 bulls per member at each competition.

Big News for the Bucking Bull Industry

August 15th, 2016

BBCHeader

STEPHENVILLE, Tex. (August 15, 2016) – The bucking bull industry continues to grow, adding more owners and venues for competition on a daily basis. In an effort to better serve those that participate in this exciting industry, American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI), Bucking Bull Games (BBG) and United Bucking Bulls, Inc. (UBBI) have announced a collaborative effort to grow the business even more. Together, the three largest event sanctioning groups have plans to create new programs and opportunities that will continue to enhance growth and increase the financial success of breeders and bull owners across the country!

“Working together to bring our members as many opportunities to compete as possible is a shared goal of all three organizations,” shared ABBI Executive Director Jay Daugherty. “We want to continue to increase the value of bucking stock, grow the industry and attract new fans and owners to the exciting sport of bucking bulls.”

The ABBI, BBG and UBBI are excited to announce the creation of a new joint website, Bucking Bull Central (www.buckingbullcentral.com). This website is designed to bring participants together and to further educate visitors about the industry. The new website will offer complete schedules for ABBI, BBG and UBBI events and a Message Board to allow everyone to share ideas and learn more about the industry. A new feature will include easy access to competition bull stats, scores and lifetime bull earnings through ProBullStats.com for ABBI registered bucking bulls.

The website will also offer bull owners and breeders a free listing to promote their animals and their programs, as well as an opportunity to display animals for sale to the public. Industry news and headlines will also be ready available directly through Bucking Bull Central.

“The bucking bull industry presents a chance for everyone to get involved with bull ownership and competition. From the novice to the most experienced bull owner, everyone can be successful,” explains Randy Schmutz, the general manager of the UBBI. “And we need to work together to continue to expand the opportunities for everyone involved!”

Specifically, Bucking Bull Central is working hard to develop a new uniform Bucking Bull Handicap Scoring System. This will allow organizations to offer a separate competition or Handicap Event, while enabling bulls of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis. The Handicap Scoring System provides a fair and uniform method to create a Handicap Index for every bull and adjusts the bull’s Index up or down as the bull’s ability improves or declines. This will create another class of events and allow a larger number of bulls to earn money.

Through ProBullStats.com, Bucking Bull Central will be able to monitor and create a Handicap Index for every bucking bull, by averaging the best three scores of a bull’s last five performances. Currently the Handicap threshold is set at 85 points.

For example: A bull’s latest five bull scores are: 82, 80.25, 82.75, 80 and 82.5. The highest three scores are added together (82.75 + 82.5 + 82 = 247.25) and then divided by 3 for a total of 82.42 points (rounded to 82.5). The Handicap threshold is 85 points, so 85 minus 82.5 would equal a 2.5 point Handicap for this bull. At a Handicap Event, the 2.5 point Handicap would be added to the bull’s score. If this bull receives a score of 83.5 points at a Handicap Event, then an additional 2.5 points would be added to his score for a total of 86 points.

Additionally, the Bucking Bull Central website will promote the ABBI’s and UBBI’s current Youth Scholarship programs, as well as Bucking Bull Games new $100,000 youth scholarship through their new Bucking Bulls for Kids (BBFK) program. All three organizations are excited to see a program in the industry that may pay for one child’s complete college education.

Bucking Bull Games has implemented a certification cost so that anyone can certify a bull into the program that has not won money at an open event as a 2-year-old. To jump start the program, BBG, ABBI and UBBI will each host a sale of 20 certified BBFK bulls. The first sale will be held during BBG’s Preliminary events at Border Town Casino & Arena on Thursday, October 6th at 6PM, and the second sale will be in Las Vegas during the ABBI/BBG/PBR finals. The third sale will be hosted by the UBBI at the Pre-Event in Mineral Wells, Texas on November 19th. The bulls will be bucked and sold at all three sales.

Billy Jaynes, CEO of the Bucking Bull Games said, “Our vision from the beginning has been to provide a payout for a winner that would change that person’s life and we have done that five times (2011-2015) as five different winners have received a check for $500,000. It will be even more exciting to provide a college education for some young person. That should impact their life forever.”
