2016 Event Results


Welcome. We are proud to be the world's leading DNA registry for bucking cattle. With over 181,000 animals in our database, we are proudly preserving the legacy of champions.

We want to say thank you to all of our hard-working breeders that support our mission and the legacy of the American Bucking Bull breed. We know you wouldn’t be a supportive member if you didn’t love our sport and the species the way that you do. 

Thank you for supporting our mission of raising the bar through the continued registration of rodeo stock genetics. Here at ABBI, we believe that genetics are important and that our future rests in genetic preservation.
