Reproductive soundness in beef bulls
Keywords:beef bulls, reproduction, fertility, measurements
Veterinarians are called upon to examine bulls for breeding soundness either before purchase or before the breeding season. There are many workers who believe that the reproductive capacity of beef bulls is generally less than that of bulls of dairy breeds. The purpose of this review is to present some comparisons of measures of reproductive capacity in bulls of beef and dairy breed in the United States and to discuss the clinical evaluation
of the bull’s reproductive system.
