"We are excited to be heading to Duncan with our American Heritage. It's the most prestigious event in the sport of bucking bulls and Duncan will be a great home for us," said ABBI Executive Director, Dan Meihak.

Over the last decade, ABBI has established itself as the largest bucking cattle registry in the world. With over 170,000 animals registered in its DNA database, it ensures the bloodlines of legendary animals are always preserved and protected. It is the largest competitive bucking bull organization for professional stock contractors and animal athletes in the world, and pays out over $3 million in prize money each season. Owned by shareholders, the ABBI raises the public profile of animal athletes to a whole new level.

Their new home, the Stephens County Fair and Expo Center, is a multi-purpose facility that accommodates a variety of events year round. The newest addition, completed in November 2014, of a 40,000 square foot covered arena to the 77,000 square foot air conditioned main arena, auxiliary barns/pavilions and additional amenities will provide a first class atmosphere with room for growth.
