2016 Red River Chute Out Futurity Event

With just over $97,000 in prize money awarded, the 2016 Red River Chute Out featured a multi-layered futurity competition, which included an open competition. The Red River Chute out was the second stop on UFL team schedule and the second of three stops of the Wayne Hodges 4 Star Trailers Futurity Super Series. Of the 60 bulls in the UFL competition, all but 10 were also included in the open competition. A total of 112 futurity bulls competed, with 102 in the open futurity and 30 enrolled in the Super Series for additional chances to win cash.

nullWhen all the dust settled in 2016, bull #457B Fireworks from D&H Cattle Company posted the highest score of 2016's entire futurity season. Fireworks scored 90.5 points to win $3,672. Cheyenne Owens' bull #29B scored 89.75 points to finish second and secure $2,237.63 in prize money. Third and fourth places were split between bull #463 Red Rocker from Dee Bland and bull #413 Little Texas from All Star Ranch. Both were also on the All Star Ranch UFL Team and scored 89.5 points. Bull #263 Kid From the Hood from Sellers Bucking Bulls/UTC continued his winning ways by placing fifth with 89 points. The 2016 futurity event at the Red River Chute Out paid 20 places and over $20,000 in prize money.

2016 Red River Chute Out Youth Futurity Event

In 2016, the Red River Chute Out had 57 youth entries from 40 different members, making it the largest single youth futurity event.

I cannot tell you how overwhelming it's been to see our UBBI Youth program grow in the last two years," UBBI general manager Randy Schmutz said in 2016. "To see the excitement on these kids faces and to watch them as they get to flank these calves and to see them helping each other to try and succeed... it's just inspirational!
Tim Dougherty, a UBBI member from Missouri, was inspired by the number of youth entries at the 2016 Red River Chute Out. He contacted the office prior to the event and contributed $700 added money to the youth futurity purse. There was also a pleasant surprise from David and April Scherotter, the parents of the late Clay Schrerotter, who competed as a UBBI youth member until his untimely death in August 2015. The Scherotter family unexpectedly donated $300 toward the youth futurity purse as well.
