I’m sure many of you saw the Chevy superbowl commercial with the Hereford bull. My sis posted it to my facebook page the day I was going to pick up bulls. We test our bulls yearly to make sure they are able to do their jobs. So yes, we are checking semen motility, morphology, and measurement. Enough, right shape, and live. We also test for stds…no kidding. If our bulls go “visiting” by jumping a fence or the neighbors come see our girls, they could catch one. This would decrease the number of calves born each year and make everyone sick. Romance isn’t always simple, even for the bovine.
