Progressive farmers are successfully using annual pre-breeding bull fertility testing to improve productivity and reduce costs of low fertility.
Penbode Farms bull fertility testing should be performed pre-breeding season to identify bulls with reduced fertility, not just those that are totally infertile. Very few bulls are totally infertile, but around 20% of bulls tested are sub-fertile. Some may be fertile one year, but not the next.
Why have your bull tested?
Up to 3 out of 10 bulls tested may be useless as a breeding bull so early detection is essential.
Reduced conception delays and extends your calving period.
Young, unevaluated bulls are being used more frequently. Sexual maturity cannot be predicted entirely by body weight and scrotal circumference and therefore semen evaluation is essential.
Ensuring you are only using fertile bulls will reduce your calving period and increase your productivity.
Reduced costs of keeping barren cows over winter in spring calving herds.
