CBR Neckover Trailers Bull of the Year is 288 Bugle

Talbert Bucking Bulls’ 288 Bugle claimed the greatest accolade of his stellar career at the CBR World Championships in Cheyenne when he was named Neckover Trailers Bull of the Year. The honor comes as a result of carrying riders to win more money than any other bull on tour this year and the award is a brand new Neckover Trailer.
 Being named bucking bull of the year is part of the family business for Bugle. His sire, 77 Yellow Jacket, was the 1999 Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Bucking Bull of the Year. One of Bugle’s half-brothers was legendary three-time bull of the year, Little Yellow Jacket. The number of other top-notch bulls with similar breeding is astounding. For this superior line of bovine athletes, winning bull of the year buckles is the family business and 288 Bugle is the newest proprietor.
 The path to winning Neckover Trailers Bull of the Year has been marked by 90-plus-point rides, finals qualifications and high-marked rides. In 2012 alone, Bugle was named Bull of the Event at three CBR Cinch Tour stops. He has more than ten rides marked 90 or more in his career and two of those were at the National Finals Rodeo, which he qualified for in 2011.  CBR stock contractor, Greg Talbert of Talbert Bucking Bulls, purchased Bugle following his amazing performance at the NFR and has had the opportunity to watch his new superstar excel.
 “He’s been awesome. It’s been a great year. He’s been hauled a lot of miles and still been amazing. We’ve been very blessed and I’m glad we were fortunate enough to be able to purchase Bugle. We appreciate the CBR staff and crew for all they do too,” Greg says.
       Despite the exceptional season Bugle had, Greg remains unsure whether he will haul him for another season in 2013 or retire him to breed bull duties. Regardless of where the road takes 288 Bugle next, he’ll be getting there in his new Neckover Trailer with the right to claim he was truly the best bull going in 2012.
