      The average breeding soundness exam costs between $55 to $65 per bull and depending on the veterinarian the cost can go down based on the volume of animals tested. Both Koziol and Armstrong believe the benefits of performing a yearly breeding soundness exam outweigh the costs and time it takes to do the exam.   Physical exam; Once the breeding season begins, a bull will literally forego his own nutritional needs and concentrate on breeding cows. Therefore, a physical exam and body condition scoring (BCS) will evaluate the physical characteristics of a bull necessary for structural soundness, mobility and athleticism in the pasture. This exam will also.

    Breeding soundness examination in bucks has not been detailed to the extent that it has in rams. The testes should be palpated carefully. Brucella ovis infection is rare, but sperm granulomas are frequently related to the polled condition; these are most often found in the head of the epididymis. Cryptorchidism is also common and heritable; as in other species, cryptorchid bucks should not be.

      Bull breeding soundness evaluations (BBSE) are conducted by veterinarians to determine a bull's capacity to sire calves under natural mating management. Accurate conduct and reporting of BBSE enables veterinarians, bull buyers, owners, and managers to make appropriate bull selection and management decisions. Published by: VetLearn Foundation ISBN: Evaluation of Bulls for Breeding Soundness is an invaluable resource for all cattle veterinarians involved in reproductive management of dairy, beef, and particularly bull-breeding herds.

As with previous editions, members of the bovine practitioners associations from each region of Canada reviewed the manual prior to publication. In bulls, assessment of libido is often not possible during a routine breeding soundness examination (BSE).

However, if possible, the bull should be observed serving cows to allow assessment of his desire to breed, ease of mounting, ability to achieve erection and extend the penis, and presence of penile deviation or other abnormalities that may prevent successful service.

Breeding Soundness of Bulls L.R. Sprott, T.A. Thrift and B.B. Carpenter* The importance of the bull in a cattle breeding program often is underestimated. A cow is responsible for half the genetic material in only one calf each year, while the bull is responsible for half the ge-netic material in 20 to 50 calves.

Chapter 2: Physical Examinations. Chapter 3: Examination of Scrotum and its Contents. Examination of Bulls for Breeding Soundness Overview The stock bull has been often neglected as a potential contributor to beef and dairy herd infertility. To maximise herd fertility efficiency it is critical that infertile and sub-fertile bulls are identified.

Pre-breeding examination of bulls should be a routine part of Veterinary Farm Health. Although the term breeding soundness evaluation is commonly used worldwide to describe the process of examination of breeding bulls the terminology used in this guide will be that used in the BCVA certificate – namely Pre-Breeding Examination (PBE) The aim of a PBE is to try and identify.

The breeding soundness examination (BSE) forecasts about bull's ability to get cows pregnant. It is done to know the libido, fertility status of bull and screening of various genital diseases. A bull breeding soundness examination carried out by your veterinary surgeon, aiming to identify individual infertile and subfertile bulls in advance of the breeding season, allows appropriate action to be taken and will frequently prove to be a very worthwhile investment.

Bull breeding soundness evaluation (BSE) in is a procedure which reduces risk and improves strategic bull usage and herd fertility.

The breeding soundness evaluation (BSE) is a method to evaluate the potential of a bull to be used as herds sire [1]. One of the essential components of the BSE is accurate semen evaluation. This chapter primarily deals with microscopic examination of semen as a part of a bull breeding soundness examination (BBSE).

A basic assessment of semen consists of the microscopic evaluation of motility and morphology. Bull is known to be half of the herd. As bull contribute large number of progenies to the next generation as compared to females so determining the potential fertility of the bull is much more important than determining the fertility of any.

The breeding soundness examination (BSE) involves a complete and systematic evaluation of the reproductive potential of a given male, including mating ability and libido, general physical examination and inspection of the genital organs, and assessment of sperm production and quality.

breeding stock become secondary in economic importance when you consider that the use of a healthy, well managed, infertile bull could result in no calves and the loss of % of the marketable calf crop. In a herd of bulls, approximately 33% failed a breeding soundness exam performed according to the Society for Theriogenology standards.

production about 60 days prior. Even heavy breeding use does not speed up the process of sperm production. A BSE starts with a physical examination of the bull. This includes the detection of unsoundness in feet, legs and eyes, etc., that would decrease the ability of a bull to travel and breed .Bull Breeding Soundness The Breeding Soundness Evaluation (BSE) is a relatively quick and economic procedure for screening bulls prior to sale or use.

Its objective is to establish a baseline, above which bulls could be regarded as satisf actory potential breeders. As it is intended for.In rams, the breeding soundness examination (BSE) is performed much as for bulls, using an electroejaculator with a smaller (ram) probe.

Body score is classified as 1–2, questionable (underconditioned); 3–4, satisfactory; and 5, questionable (overconditioned).
