CLARKSVILLE, TN (NOW CLARKSVILLE) – Local musician Daniel Walker runs the Walker Farm & Ranch off Parchman Road. On Saturday, he hosted the second annual “Bulls, Booms, and Burgers.”

The event started with a Tannerite bang, followed by live music, live bull riding and the first ever freestyle bullfighting event in Clarksville.

Walker told Clarksville Now that while he knows there are concerns about the humane treatment of the bulls, he encourages anyone who cares about their quality of life to come to his ranch.

“We love these animals as much as we love rodeo,” Walker said. “They live a life of luxury, they are fed 15 pounds of feed a day, not including hay, and they are pampered.”

Walker brought in professional bull riders for this event, including cowboy protection bulls, which protect bulls from bulls once they have fallen. These cowboys came from every state, Walker said, including places like Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio and Louisiana. Even with the free bullfighting event, Walker said these animals would not be harmed.

“It’s very interesting, it’s like dancing, they’re trying to keep that bull engaged on them.”

Walker said he hopes more people enjoy next year.
