Testing for bull strength

TRAVERSE CITY – The MSU Extension Beef Team has again organized regional Bull Breeding Soundness Exam clinics.

By identifying potential male fertility problems, producers can reduce the risk of a sub-optimal breeding season.

The MSUE Beef Team encourages producers to have BSE carried out on their breeding bulls every year.

A clinic is planned for May 1st at Stamper Farms in Clare County.

Manufacturers wishing to have their bulls tested must register by calling the MSU Extension Office in Gladwin County at (989) 426-7741 or emailing [email protected]

The cost is $ 60 to $ 75 per bull when done in an MSUE clinic. The price depends on the number of bulls. The clinic starts at 9 a.m.

Instructions about the farm are provided at the time of registration.
