Bull Clinic Schedule

  • Published: Friday, Feb. 19, 2021

Mt. Vernon, MO - If it’s almost March, it’s time to schedule appointments to have bulls examined for breeding soundness.  It could be more important than ever this year considering the sub-zero weather we’ve had earlier this month.  Frost-bitten scrotums, prepuces, etc. could be a problem this year.  If you run Brahman cross bulls, it could be especially bad unless they were in a well-protected, bedded area.

Here’s the schedule for the clinics.

March 2     Barry County Vet Service Cassville     847-2677

March 16   Dake Veterinary Clinic, Miller             452-3301

March 18   Animal Clinic of Diamond, Diamond   325-4136

March 24   Countryside Animal Clinic, Aurora      678-4011

Call to get an appointment either at the special clinics or from your won veterinarian.  We’re fortunate to have a number of veterinary clinics in southwest Missouri who do a good job of performing BSEs on bulls so make your appointment with your vet.

Over the years we have found between 10 and 15 percent of the bulls to be questionable as satisfactory potential breeders.  If they’re not in good shape on their BSE then you’ll end up with a strung out calf crop next year or maybe no calves at all.
