BSE – Breeding Soundness Exams
Using a subfertile bull may lead to longer calving intervals, a lower number of calves produced and increased costs from wintering over open females. All of these results cause serious economic loss to the cow-calf producer. Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Factsheet 410/20 Beef Bull Fertility
Los Lunas Animal Clinic doctors perform bull fertility exams at your ranch. We have an experienced team of professionals which can come to you and meet your fertility program needs. We customize your results to the breadth and depth required by your fertility program.
We use a Pulsator electroejaculator and a digital microscope so you can view each bull's semen as we evaluate. We can help you make decisions on which bulls to continue as we test, or more comprehensive written reports are available if desired.
Trich testing (for trichomoniasis ) is also available and recommended at the time of evaluation.

Evaluating breeding soundness of bulls is an often neglected management practice. . . .
It is economically important that all bulls are fertile. An annual breeding soundness examination of each bull is the only way to predict that the producers will get their money's worth from the bull battery. New Mexico State University Guide B-216, Evaluating the Breeding Soundness of Beef Bulls.
