Bucking bull competition underway

DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) - In Duncan, a lot is on the line for breeders who are hoping their bull has what it takes to one day win them big money in the rodeo arena.  

The American Bucking Bull Incorporated Competition got underway Friday.

It's not a rodeo, but it is a proving ground for 2-year-old calves who are bred for rodeos. During this competition, they're judged on a series of events that grade the calves' bucking ability, how fast they get out of the gate and how high they can jump.

One man whose bull competed in the competition gave some advice as to what one would want in a competing bull.

"You want one that will pretty much kick high as the buck chutes, kicks over his head and spins in the gate and do it with a lot of juice. if he can do that he's going to leave here with a lot of money,” Jerome Davis said.

Over half a million dollars will be given away with the winner taking home

100-thousand dollars in prize money. The competition will wrap up Saturday evening at the Stephens County Fairgrounds. It is free to the public.
