Although, Chad Berger Bucking Bulls 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 mid 60’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. 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 Challenger Tour event. 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.
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 has had the prestigous honor and title of Stock Contractor of the Year. Now adding to that he is the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, & 2020 PBR Stock Contractor of the Year.
