Monster bull proves unmountable

Yahoo!7 Updated August 16, 2011, 12:02 pm

Bushwacker, a giant 730kg beast, is now regarded as a once-in-a-lifetime champion animal.

This season, eight bull riders have attempted to mount this monster for the required eight seconds needed in a qualifying ride, and not one has been able to complete the task.

Since the bull fully matured the longest recorded time anyone has been able to ride him has been 6.6 seconds - the average time for professional riders is just 3.06 seconds.

Bushwacker bucks off a professional rider: Screengrab

In 2009 Bushwacker was mounted for eight seconds but he was still an adolescent at this stage.

It takes about 7.5kg of corn, grain and peanut hulls along with 150 litres of water a day to keep Bushwacker happy.

The powerful beast earns around US$330,000 a year and his sperm fetches up to $2000 a sample.

A scary aspect? Just as the announcer says in the clip, "Bushwacker hasn't even warmed up yet."

    Take the belt off the bull so it isn't in pain and see how hard it bucks then.

    Alison; It is either throw bullriders or become steak. What would you choose if it was you??? He certainly has a much better life than if he was forced to fight against other bulls for his right to propogate!!! I bet Alison would like her "Stud Bull"!!

    Alison your right its crap !! Funny how Men / women think they are so great when they conquer another animal . So small mined .!! Strengh in the human race is based on we evolve from the Neanderthal stage of humanity to where we are now. Those rider are losers in my opinion who have EGO Problems

    Dont worry about the riders or the bull, its the poor bloke that has to get his sperm thats the real hero. Bet he hopes bushwacker only lasts about 3.6 seconds.

    So the powerful beast earns around $330,000 a year does he. Is that put into a trust fund for him I wonder or just straight into superannuation.

    I just love the way they describe it as "mounting" the bull rather than riding it, it makes the Kiwis and their love of sheep look positively tame.....Go you good thing Bushwacker!!
