Although, Chad Berger Bucking Bulls of Mandan, ND was established in 2003 it

really got its start in the early 1960s. Chad’s father Joe, a well-known bull breeder and stock

contractor began buying bulls for Chad and his brother Fred, to ride. By the 70’s, Joe had

enough livestock to start supplying smaller events and the business took off from there. Chad

enjoyed working with his father and loved the bucking bull business. The family produced

many great bucking bulls including what many consider to be one of the greatest bull's ever,

"Little Yellow Jacket".


In 2003, with the support of his entire family, Chad started his own company

Chad Berger Bucking Bulls. By 2006 Chad had put together a herd of bulls worthy of earning

third place in the standings for stock contractor of the year for the PBR. In 2007, Chad Berger

Bucking Bulls earned the most prestigious award of Stock Contractor of the Year. Again in

2008 Chad, along with partner Clay Struve won the award for the second year in a row. Chad

may have won the gold buckle, but he was quick to point out that winning the award had

been a team effort. He then won Stock Contractor of the Year again in 2009. For 3 years in a

row, he had the prestigious honor and title of Stock Contractor of the Year. He’s since then

added 8 more PBR Stock Contractor of the Year titles from 2014-2021.


The company has been a family affair from the word "go" with everyone playing

an important role in the overall success. Sarah, Chad's wife takes on the important role of

producing the yearly PBR Touring Pro event and holding down the fort while Chad is busy

traveling. Chad & Sarah's three kids, Lacey, John & Sadie all play different roles in the family

business from caring for & hauling the bulls to sales and marketing. The family has taken

great pride in marketing the company name to bull riding and rodeo fans across the country

and world!
