For bulls a physical exam, semen evaluation and trichomoniasis testing is provided.
These examinations ensure that your farm animals will be able to reproduce successfully and produce healthy offspring.
Bovine Trichomoniasis Testing
Trichomoniasis (trich) does not produce outward symptoms in bulls. However, the disease does have a significant impact on the reproductive capabilities of cattle. So, routine trich testing is highly recommended and necessary for reproducing bulls. Trich testing is performed by collecting a swab sample and looking at it under a microscope.
