    Where:  
    El Dorado Springs Veterinary Clinic
    4975 S Highway 32, El Dorado Springs MO map...

    Description:

    On April 23rd and 25th, at the El Dorado Springs Veterinary Clinic in El Dorado Springs, Mo., MU Extension will be working with Dr. Brian Collins, DVM and Zoetis to conduct a bull BSE clinic. The BSE will be performed on the bull to ensure that he is reproductively and structurally sound before entering the breeding season. The veterinarian will examine the testicles for adequate size, penis and prepuce to make sure there is no injuries, the accessory sex glands to make sure they are sound, and the semen for adequate motility and morphology. In addition, the veterinarian will look at the structural soundness of the bull to determine if he is physically sound to breed cows during the breeding season.
    In addition to the BSE, MU Extension Regional Livestock Field Specialist Davis will educate cattle producers on bull body condition scoring (BCS) and foot scoring (FS) which are tools to assess the energy status and structural soundness of your bull. “Bulls should be in a BCS of 6 as well as have an adequate FS for angle and claw set prior to the breeding season,” says Davis. By meeting these parameters, the bull should be in shape to be successful during the breeding season. Davis will also talk about bull expected progeny differences (EPDS), genomic testing, and how utilization of this information will improve the success of your cattle operation.
    Since Zoetis is a partner, the bulls will be given booster vaccinations as well as treated for internal and external parasites at no charge to the producer.

    Session topic:

    Cattle producers have a bull breeding soundness exam done and are education on the bull breeding soundness exam, body condition scoring, and foot scoring. If the producer chose to they could have their bull Trichmoniasis and genomically tested and they were educated on why that might be needed
