MSU Extension are organizing the regional Bull Breeding Soundness Exam Clinics. This educational opportunity will provide more explanation to the future of your herd, and what may need to be done to make your future as successful as possible.

2019 Michigan Bull Breeding Soundness Exam Clinics

The MSU Beef Extension Team will once again be organizing regional Bull Breeding Soundness Exam (BSE) Clinics. By identifying potential male fertility problems, producers are able to reduce the risk of a less than optimum breeding season. The MSUE Beef Team encourages you to have BSE conducted on your breeding bulls every year. Contact your veterinarian or take advantage of the following Breeding Soundness Exam Clinics organized by MSUE. Cost is $60 per bull when done at one of the MSUE clinics. To schedule an appointment at one of these BSE clinics, please call the appropriate contact person as soon as possible.  All Clinics start at 9:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
