Starting with the upcoming event in Gonzales, Texas, the Under 84 Futurity division will be changed to an Under $2,000 Futurity division.
“The Under 84 class has been really popular this season so far, but we listened to members’ suggestions and determined it would be more fair to make it a class based on money won, not scores,” explained ABBI Executive Director Jay Daugherty. “At an event with many good bulls, an animal could score 84 or higher and still not be in the money- yet he would then be prohibited from entering that class in the future. Now an animal may enter and compete in the new Under $2,000 Futurity as long as his prize money is $1,999.99 or less.”
After this weekend’s American Heritage event alone, 30 bulls would have been ineligible for Under 84 competition despite winning no money at the event. With the change in this division, they will be eligible to compete at future Under $2,000 events.
