Xtreme Bulls Tour replacing State Fair Rodeo

/> ”They are selling some bulls for six figures now. Everybody in Texas and Oklahoma that has a back yard is in the bull business now.”

Beutler will have some of his rankest bulls in Oklahoma City at the State Fair: .38 Special, Little Ivan, Deputy Sheriff and Phantom, just to name a few.

"Rodeo fans know more about the bulls than they do the cowboys,” Beutler said. "They sell more stuffed animals of bulls than they do the T-shirts of the cowboys.”

In Oklahoma City, there will be 40 different bull riders each night with the top 10 advancing to a short round each night.

The bull riders are competing for a share of a $15,000 purse. Action begins at 7:30 both tonight and Saturday night.
