Currently Reads:

11b. Testing Procedure- All bulls entered in an BBG approved event is subject to drug testing by the   official veterinarian at the event. Testing at an event with be at the discretion of event promoters and/or BBGs. The official veterinarian, with the approval of the event management, may appoint a technician to collect samples. The official event veterinarian is authorized to collect blood and/or urine and/or hair samples from any bull entered at the event as they deem to be reasonable and necessary. At all BBG’s Bucking Bull Games Finale & Preliminary events any bull that wins over $12,500 or more will be tested along with a sufficient (minimum of one or two) number of extra bulls (this is in the case that a bull fails a test.) The extras will be the bulls that would move up and win money if another bull is disqualified. Only a veterinarian can deem the facility unsafe for collecting samples and if so then testing will be cancelled at that event. If the veterinarian deems the facility to be safe and feels the animals are not of high risk of being injured then all animals will be tested in same manner and in same chute. If owner of bull refuses to have bull tested or bull is not available for testing (this includes owner leaving before testing) then owner’s bull will receive a score of zero and next bull in line will be moved up. BBG and BBG’s veterinarian will always keep the risk of injury as low as possible however anytime a bull attends an BBG event there is always the risk of bull being injured in many including but not limited to being handled at event, while bucking and while being tested. Owner agrees to take sole responsibility for injury that may result to a bull regardless of what happens while at an BBG event.
