Once again the attention is divided among the bull riders as well as their counterparts, the top eight bull athletes in the world. The World Champion bucking bull race is tighter this year as it has ever been with eight contenders vying for the coveted crown.

One of the highlights of many fan’s minds was one of the last two outs of the legendary career of World Champion bucking bull Bushwacker. Everyone knows that name regardless of whether or not they are avid watchers of the Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series. As the career and the 2014 World Championship race draws even closer Bushwacker felt the excitement and gained a bull score of 45.00, which many fans and contestants felt was scored low, in the second round of the 2014 PBR World Finals. With the trip he had out of the chute gates tonight it puts him towards the bottom of the championship standings going into the final Championship Sunday round to determine who the champion will be. Watch his second round ride right here on the Rodeo Round Up below!
The Director of PBR Livestock, Cody Lambert, stopped by to talk with Jason at the Heroes and Legends Reunion and the Ring of Honor ceremony to talk all things related to bulls within the Professional Bull Riders organization. Cody and Jason talk about what he personally looks for in bringing bulls into the PBR and ultimately to Las Vegas to perform at the World Finals each and every year. He also lets us know into what his thoughts will be to watch Bushwacker buck out one last time and what it will mean to the spot of professional bull riding to loose such a popular bovine athlete to retirement. What does he have to say about the up and coming bulls in the ABBI and who will take Bushwacker’s place? Find out below when Jason catches up with the Director of PBR Livestock!
