Don Kish

Don Kish began his interest in rodeo during his High School years. Dons concentration in rodeo were in the three "Ruff Stock" events, Saddle Bronc, Bareback and Bull Riding. Through his High School years he won many awards such as 1980 California State Saddle Bronc and Reserve All-Around Championship.

In 1979 Don became a PRCA Stock Contractor and teamed up with John Growney and Growney Brothers Rodeo Company. Johns interest in Bucking Horses and Dons interest in Bucking Bulls made a great combination. As the rodeo company grew to the professional level, Don saw there was a need for quality livestock. With this in mind Dons bucking bull breeding program emerged to the Professional level. In 1983 Don purchased the bull Red Rock and 25 crossbreed Cows, the foundation was formed and his Breeding program was underway.

Over the past twenty- five plus years Don has raised nearly 100% of the Bucking Bulls on the ranch in Red Bluff, California.
The Bucking Bull breeding business has grown to more than just keeping the Kish's supplied with Bulls. They offer other contractors and bucking bull enthusiasts the ability to purchase semen from great Bucking Stock to start their own breeding programs. In addition some heifers, select cows and retired bulls have become available to start or improve breeding programs across the country.
