Extension Office announces bull soundness clinic

Staff Writer

The Hot Spring County Cooperative Extension Service has announced Thursday, Dec. 3, as the date for a Beef Bull Breeding Soundness Evaluation Clinic. The testing starts at 8:30 a.m., and will continue until all bulls signed up are tested. The clinic will be at Arnis and Vivian Hickman’s Farm in the Gifford Community, and Dr. Chris Nelson, DVM will conduct the examinations. Along with the test, Dr. Nelson will deworm the bulls at no additional charge. Dr. Nelson will also be able to perform a Trichomoniasis test if wanted for an additional charge. With today’s cattle market, it would be a detrimental loss to miss out on a calving season because of using an infertile bull. Take the time to have your bulls tested before turning them out for your breeding season. Check with the Hot Spring County Cooperative Extension office at (501) 332-5267 for costs and other services being offered and to schedule a time for your bulls to be tested.
Please call if you plan on bringing a bull by Monday, Nov. 30.
Beef producers are encouraged to get their bulls ready for breeding season with a complete breeding soundness evaluation and checkup, including a complete physical examination and semen check.
The Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service offers its program to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, marital or veteran status, or any other legally protected status, and is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.”
