125 calves to compete for their share of the more than $260K payout in new 2018 ABBI Fall Yearling Series

Fall Yearling Series finale to take place at ABBI World Finals in Las Vegas

Pueblo, CO (February 28, 2018) – 125 calves are set to compete in American Bucking Bull Inc’s (ABBI) new Fall Yearling Series that will include 100% payback and more than $260,000 in prize money.

“Thank you to everyone who has sign up to participate in this new Fall Yearling Series,” ABBI Executive Director Jay Daugherty said. “We are always looking for new ways to support our members, and this series has already shown it is expected to be successful and rewarding due to the high volume of interest.”

The series finale will be held at South Point Arena in Las Vegas during the ABBI World Finals in November with a total payout of $187,500. All prize money will go straight back to the Stock Contractors.

All Yearling calves will still be able to compete in the regular Yearling event in Vegas. Stock Contractors looking to solely compete in the Fall Yearling Series Finale and forego the other event will have to pay a small pen fee.
