Test and check you bulls at the start of mating season

FMG claims data shows broken bull pizzles are a leading cause of bull injury claims during mating season. This leads to vet appointments or needing to get a replacement bull, which of course, interferes with farming.

Even if he worked well last year, all bulls should be checked and tested prior to purchases, as well as at the beginning of each mating season. Checking the bulls in the first days of mating is crucial to ensure they are performing correctly and penetration of the cows is seen. This will avoid injuries and decrease the chance of penis damage, genital warts or other genetic issues interfering with this season’s plans.
