Southern Riverina Vets provides a comprehensive service to monitor the performance of bulls in both Beef and Dairy herds.

Our large animal vets are all members of the Australian Cattle Vets and we carry out a comprehensive Bull Soundness Examination aimed at finding sub-fertile  bulls. This includes a full physical examination, serving ability test (as necessary) and semen evaluation. The semen evaluation is initially a microscopic, crush-side examination for motility and concentration followed by laboratory assessment of semen morphology.

Our semen collection is conducted with a “Pulsator IV”, an imported ejaculator that allows for consistent, efficient and low stress semen collection.

Testing of your bulls 1-2 months prior to joining is a good way for both Dairy and Beef herds to minimise sub-optimal performance. In doing so, it gives confidence in the management of the bull power necessary for good reproductive performance.
