Not much of a pic, but it's what I have to offer. He 3 jumped the crash dummy we had on him, and got pretty close to vertical several times. Not much action in the front end of either bull. I wouldn't be afraid to put my mother in law on the white bull, but he may improve.

Hard to say much from the picture but sounds like the red one did ok. I have seen bulls who went on to be great have poor first outings. I wouldn't mind seeing videos of both next time you buck them if you can with your phone.


Neither of them did very well. They are going to stay at the university this week, and next week, I will be at their mercy on a video. If the send me one, I will pm you my phone number.

Ain't that the truth. I know I bought a few steak dinners back when I was riding for saving my bacon.

So, I'm reading this thread aloud with my 2nd grade son...who asks, "Dad, do you think I'd do a good job raising cows?"

Great thread ... :)

After much deliberation, he sold the bucking bred bull at the yard Thursday. We kept the other bull. I would classify it as one step up from what I'd see bucked at a youth rodeo in our area. "Maybe" on par with what might get brought to an open rodeo. Definitely won't be hauling to any futurities. I've turned it out with my heifers, so we will have it till fall. Might keep it thru the winter to see what it does as a 2 year old.

The experiment was fun. Didn't cost much. Kinda like waiting for eggs to hatch sort of thing. Had a mishap, and lost our semen. It was actually pretty cheap, so no real financial loss. I wouldn't rule out doing it again.

A thanks to CP for running down the semen for me.

Sorry he didn't buck better. Glad y'all had fun and glad to hear you are open to doing it again. I have thought about doing it just never have. I have also thought about buying a young bucking bull at a bucking sale.

If you do it, use 329 Houdini for a straw. Probably the best bang for your buck (no pun intended) and give you the "best odds." As for sales....well, be prepared to spend a lot.

Yeah he is a good bull to use. I think I saw him listed at 500 a straw. Yeah I have been to sales they want a pretty penny for anything that bucks halfway decent. I wouldn't do it till I was set up a lil better to work him out somewhere with chutes.

The story that I heard on him is that he was a commercial beef bull that was headed for slaughter and was bought by someone to use in high school rodeos. He sucked and was about to get canned and then a kid hung up on him. After that night he was a different animal, and as they say, the rest is history.


Jess bought Bodacious out of the sale barn at Geary OK and sold him before he was ever bucked is how I heard the story. I think he was sold again before being tried out.
