Balzac, AB: The bucking bull industry in Canada is a rival of any other area in the bull raising world. Some of the best bulls to ever live have come from here. It’s something to be proud of.

This press release comes from Russell and Jennifer Friend. It explains all you need to know about the event. Thank you to them for sharing it and putting the work in to host such a great event! We look forward to seeing you there on Wednesday.
WHERE DO RODEO BUCKING BULLS COME FROM?
HOW ARE BUCKING BULLS “MADE”?
WHAT MAKES BUCKING BULLS “PERFORM”?
With the Calgary Stampede “CENTENNIAL” – the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth – less than two months away; people are beginning to get excited about the Western lifestyle and the sport of Rodeo.
Very few people are aware of the resources involved in raising top Rodeo Livestock; specifically bucking Bulls.
There are several myths surrounding handling of the animals: for example, most people don’t realize the “flank” goes around the animal’s “waist” and acts like a weightlifter’s belt for protection.
The Friendly Futurity, hosted by Double F Rodeo Bulls, is the largest event in the entire Canadian Bucking Bull Industry. There will be 20+ different breeders showcasing over 40 bucking Bulls from all across Western Canada.
Breeding (pedigree), confirmation, nutrition, exercise, chute delivery, flank type, weather and ground conditions all play important roles in the performance of any bovine athlete. Come and learn what is involved in caring for and preparing these specialized animals. Learn where Rodeo bucking Bulls come from and what it takes to make a Champion!
This opportunity could easily attract National attention as it is so unique and interesting.
We would appreciate a medium to share facts, knowledge and experiences with the general public; fostering a better understanding of what it takes to make a bucking Bull perform to the level of a Champion!
