Bucking dummies have been around for decades. All sorts of ideas were utilized to see if a farm or ranch’s livestock had any aptitude for the sport of bucking. Buddy Reynolds and Bob Wilfong were there from the start of competition buck outs for young bulls.

In 2001, Buddy and Bob provided the young American Bucking Bull Incorporated (ABBI) with equipment that could safely allow two and three-year-old bulls to be bucked in futurities and derby’s. Buck ‘Em All Dummies were used exclusively in the ABBI futurities for the following several years.
In 2004, ABBI held their first futurity with Buck ‘Em All Dummies as their official machine. Since that time hundreds of bulls have been bucked with our equipment, a lot of times hundreds in one weekend, with little or no trouble.
In 2005, Buck ‘Em All Dummies partnered with the National Bucking Bull Association (NBBA) in providing quality dummies for bucking bull futurities. Buck ‘Em All Dummies can be seen at all NBBA sanctioned events today.
In 2012, Buck ‘Em All Dummies introduced a new lower profile machine with improved battery technology.
Buck ‘Em All Dummies strives to keep livestock safe and comfortable while providing an exceptional opportunity for the highest performance of livestock. With product improvements such as lighter weight, lower profile, and longer battery life, Buck ‘Em All Dummies has evolved into one of the most trustworthy and safe bucking dummies on the market today for cattle and horses. This dummy has an ergonomically correct hinge design that keeps it in place as your livestock jumps, kicks, turns back and spins.
