Sire: 927 Air Time (Sneakin W's Big Cat)
Dam: Lone Star 912 (Hotel California)
Bill The Butcher was raised in Cushing, Texas by Lone Star Bucking Bull Genetics. He is an own son of Phenom Genetics Inc. - Matt Scharping famous bull Air Time. His dam, LSBBG 912 is a product of an embryo transfer program. She is an own daughter Hotel California and out of BW55, the dam to Tigger Too and two other sons with stats.
Hayden Shaw got ahold of him as a yearling and put a few trips on him as a yearling. He then sold him to his long time friend Heath Hayes. Hayden sold him AJ as a bucking bull and sire prospect, but not as a futurity calf. Heath Hayes sent the bull to Stormy Foster, but they weren’t doin much with big bulls at the time. Heath made the decision to send the bull to Bent Rail Bucking Bulls and they hauled him his whole Classic year. He was the Classic Champion at the JW Hart Invitational in Decatur, Texas.
Hayden Shaw ended up AJ again this past winter as a five year old when his partner, Bob Wisnant purchased him from Heath Hayes. They bought him as a “bull team bull” with hopes of getting a really high bull score with little ride time. That plan worked out very well, as they won over $50,000 in just a few team events with AJ on the roster. Shaw and Wisnant slowed down a little on the bull team events and let Billy Jones try him with @petecarrpro. He had one PRCA ProRodeo out being high marked bull at the Weatherford, Texas Xtreme Bulls event.
Shortly after that, Jeremy Walker and Ben Marquis contacted Shaw about purchasing the bull and making a run at the PBR Finals with him. They were able to strike a deal and “Bull The Butcher” now resides in Stephenville, Texas!
