Our focus is often on the cows in a herd but please remember your bulls too!
Ensuring these guys are in peak condition gives the best chance for a successful calving season next year. On average a bull would be expected to get 90% of his girlfriends pregnant in a 9-week period- tough work for any male! We can offer foot trimming, a full clinical examination alongside a semen evaluation in one visit with our side tipping crush. The clinical examination and semen evaluation includes:
Assessment of heart, eyes, teeth and lungs
Full routine foot trim
Assessment of testicles and penis (the money makers!)
Palpation of the prostate
Microscopic evaluation of the quality of sperm as an indicator of fertility Lameness can affect a bull’s fertility for up to 6 weeks- don’t let time run out when it comes to getting your bull ready for turnout.
Set up fee for the crush is £75 + VAT plus visit fee. To book a visit please call the practice.
