Results. The association analyses identified at least eight genomic regions strongly associated with bull fertility. Most of these regions harbor genes, such as KAT8, CKB, TDRD9 and IGF1R, with functions related to sperm biology, including sperm development, motility and sperm-egg er, the gene set analyses revealed many significant functional terms, including fertilization Cited by: Factory farming is the modern practice of raising animals for food in extreme confinement, in order to maximize profits. In addition to intense confinement, abuses usually associated with factory farming include massive doses of hormones and antibiotics, battery cages, debeaking, tail docking, gestation crates, and veal crates. The animals spend their entire lives in these miserable conditions.
Child safety on the farm: livestock. While farms are a wonderful place to grow up, filled with fascinating animals, but those animals can be extremely hazardous to children. Keeping children at safe distances and out of pens or stalls is a good first step. Teaching them to observe and not interfere will help keep them safe. Range Beef Cow Symposium XXI.

Maybe not. You do have the option of breeding cows by artificial insemination. It’s not perfect, and maybe you’ll only get 60% to 70% conception with A.I.
And you’ll still need a clean-up bull to catch some : Gene Johnston. You do have the option of breeding cows by artificial insemination (AI). It's not perfect, and maybe you'll only get 60% to 70% conception with AI.
And you'll still need a cleanup bull to catch late breeders that don't settle by : Gene Johnston. Bull selection, management, and evaluation of performance are integral aspects of beef improvement.
The bull can affect calving percentage as well as quality of calves. The use of performance-tested bulls (beef and dairy) is recommended for both natural breeding and artificial insemination. Ken Montsma takes bull semen to be thawed before inserting it in a cow on a farm near Fond du Lac, Wis.
Artificial insemination is considered safer because temperamental bulls are kept away from cows. Handling of the semen When preparing the semen for AI-ing a cow, the canister is lifted to the neck of the liquid nitrogen tank the selected cane is lifted and a straw is removed within 10 seconds.
The straw is pulled from the cane and deposited into the warm water bath that is. In terms of the breeding cost per pregnancy, costs can vary substantially among both breeding options. Calculations from Dr. Sandy Johnson at Kansas State University indicate that natural service costs range from $15 to 82/pregnancy, depending on bull purchase price and bull-to-cow ratio.
For instance, an inexperienced bull may spend all his time breeding one cow, whereas an older bull may breed each cow once and move to the next. “Another problem when using yearlings as cleanup bulls in synchronized artificial insemination programs is that the cows that don’t settle all come in heat again at the same time.

Many cattle ranches and stations run bulls with cows, and most dairy or beef farms traditionally had at least one, if not several, bulls for purposes of herd maintenance.   However, the problems associated with handling a bull (particularly where cows must be removed from his presence to be worked) has prompted many dairy farmers to restrict themselves to artificial insemination (AI) of the cows.
Artificial insemination (AI) is the deliberate introduction of sperm into a female's cervix or uterine cavity for the purpose of achieving a pregnancy through in vivo fertilization by means other than sexual is a fertility treatment for humans, and is common practice in animal breeding, including dairy cattle (see Frozen bovine semen) and : Buy Animal Breeding at WHSmith.

A crowding or funnel pen with a swinging gate is needed to crowd into the working chute. The fertility associated with the use of sexed bull semen is typically % lower than that with conventional unsexed semen.
This is due, at least in part, to the low number of sexed sperm that are being provided per inseminate, as necessary due to the cost and inefficiency of the sex sorting process. The goal of this study is to determine if the fertility resulting from A.I.

Agdex#: use artificial insemination for breeding and not bring in bulls The most common means of contaminating feed or feeding areas is by on-farm equipment used for handling manure.

Managing and Developing Young Beef Bulls February There are as many ways to feed and develop young beef bulls as there are seedstock producers. There are many and varied reasons that bulls are managed and fed the way they are.
Whether bulls are developed on the ranch, in a commercial facility, or at a central bull test, they are usually fed to gain to pounds daily.
It requires that bulls be restrained. It can, however, be performed with equipment that is relatively portable so that veterinarians often perform the evaluation on the farm.
The BSE consists of the following procedures: Physical examination - The bull is examined in a systematic way for any problem that would hamper his ability to impregnate.

It is important that safety is the number one priority when working with livestock. Here are some tips to prevent accidents on the farm when working with livestock.Many of the hazards involved in working with farm animals can be reduced, and injuries prevented, by taking a few basic precautions and observing safety rules.
In addition, Dr. Temple Grandin, of Colorado State University, has demonstrated that the use of safe and gentle livestock handling techniques results in a higher quality final product.Farm Animals Animal Welfare Audit and Certification Programs In the United States, most livestock production industries have developed and implemented science-based animal care guidelines in response to consumer concerns that animals being raised .
