Everyone involved in the bucking bull industry understands things can changein an instant. You can go from first to last in one jump, or you can move from the top 10 to 1st place in two performances! That was the case with Scott Cattle Company’s bull #323 Biker Bob! JR Scott’s big-horned, red bull entered the UBBI National Finals in 7th place. But after a first place finish in the first round and third place finish in the second round, Biker Bob placed second in the aggregate to earn a total of $9000 at this year’s UBBI National Finals, to catapult to the UBBI Derby World Championship title!

“It’s always exciting to see these bulls peak at the absolute right time,” explained

Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI. “Biker Bob has always been a bull that shows up and wins money! But he definitely did it at the right time and at the right place!”

Biker Bob posted an 89 point score in the first round to earn $1000 for the go-round win! Tom & Peggy’s bull #JF310 Power Plant placed second with 88.5 points and in third place was Cody Ohl’s bull #761 Bushwacked, with a score of 88.25 points. Other top 10 finishers

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!

Bull #212 Locke & Loaded earned $4025 in regular UBBI season earnings to enter the UBBI National Finals in the 8th position

$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. But it was his Saturday night performance that sealed the deal. 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

about the win maybe more than I am. And I wanna thank Mike Weston for all of his help with the bull too!”

The first round of Classic bull competition saw bull #Z8-8 Losing My Religion from Dennis Owens/Sam Wyatt winning the round with a score of 89.75 points, followed by Sketchy Bob with a score of 89.25 points. Bull #1206 Cut the Cord from Aduddell/Owens scored 88.25 points to finish 3rd.

The United Bucking Bulls, Inc (UBBI) produced it’s first sanctioned bucking bull event in 2011 in Winnie, Texas! Now in it’s 6th season, the UBBI has experienced growth in all areas, but is probably most excited about the UBBI Youth Futurity Series.

“It’ really overwhelming for me to see the explosion of our Youth Futurity program,” explained Randy Schmutz, the general manager of the UBBI. “In 2012, we hosted 3 Youth Futurity events with a total o f 43 entries! In 2016, we hosted 6 events with 312 entries! Wow. . . .that’s simply amazing to me!”

In fact, the UBBI Youth Futurity Series experienced a 42% increase in

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.

UBBI. “And it shows! We get new kids wanting to enter each year and we have a pretty darn good Youth Scholarship program, too!”

The UBBI Youth Scholarship program has awarded $23,000 in educational assistance to 10 different youth members during the 2015 and 2016 seasons! This has been made possible by two major sponsors, James Hogue, the owner

Cola Kid with an 87.5 point score. And rounding out the top 4 was a split for 4th/5th place, with bull #409 Can’t Get It Right from Cassidi Porter and bull #415 Turn Me On from Blaine Burleson.

Each year the UBBI awards at least $8,000 in performance scholarships based on points. At every youth event, each bull earns a point for each bull it beats. In other words, if there are 45 bull participating the 1st place bull earns 44 points. The second place bull earns 43 points and so on.

This year’s winner of the Finale was Kason Arjona with his bull Livin the Life scoring 89.25 points, earning Kason a $1,000 scholarship. The Top 4 High Point bulls were: 1st Place #3-16 Pasture Blaster owned by Blaine Burleson $2500 scholarship; 2nd Place 3X716 War Head owned by Wyatt Schiell ~ $2000 scholarship; 3rd Place #04 Prayer Warrior owned by Westin Cobb/Two Brothers Bucking Bulls ~ $1500 scholarship; 4th Place #405 Kick Start owned by Millie Chism.

The 2016 Youth Futurity  Series Merit Scholarship recipient was Westin Cobb. Westin is a sophomore at Walker High School in Walker, Louisiana. After graduation, Westin plans to attend Louisiana State University (LSU) and pursue a degree in Agri-Business. Westin was awarded a $2,000 scholarship!

More than once we’ve all heard the phrase, “. . . .our youth are the future!” We all know it’s true and we can see it in all of our UBBI Youth members!

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.”
