Spring is fast approaching and the breeding season is right around the corner. In order to ensure a successful breeding season, a bull breeding soundness exam (BSE) is essential. Most bulls are capable of breeding cows, however, some may be “sub-fertile” resulting in more open cows at pregnancy check and a longer calving window. We recommend a BSE every year prior to breeding season as approximately 10-20% of bulls will not be suitable for breeding.
Breeding soundness exams include:
Complete physical exam
Extensive reproductive exam
Semen quality evaluation
Using our state of the art cattle handling facility, we can perform this test in a safe and convenient working environment for both the bull and the veterinarian at no additional charge.
