Last year, this program tested over 300 bulls for 110 different operations. By identifying these potential male fertility problems, producers were able to reduce the risk of a less than optimum breeding season. The MSU Extension Beef Team encourages you to have breeding soundness exams conducted on your breeding bulls every year. Contact your veterinarian or take advantage of the following Breeding Soundness Exam Clinics organized by MSU Extension.
Cost is $55 per bull when done at one of the MSU Extension clinics. To schedule an appointment at one of these breeding soundness exam clinics, please call the appropriate contact person as soon as possible. All Clinics start at 9 a.m. In addition, the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine regularly schedules in-house appointments for breeding soundness exams. To schedule an appointment contact the MSU CVM Large Animal Clinic at 517-353-9710.
