Yesterday was bull testing day.
What kind of test, you ask?
Well… the thing that makes bulls a vital part of any ranch. Their test grade all depends on whether they can pass along those expensive genetics!
So… the vet puts a slide sample under his microscope to make sure each bull is producing a lively amount of swimming semen. He then takes a long pipette sample from the same place to check for trichomoniasis. Trich is a venereal disease that can cause cows to abort… something we DEFINITELY try to avoid.
While I’m trying to protect your delicate sensibilities, that’s not the case when you attend these sessions live. Double entendres and blatant comments, both fly freely from those working the chute and doing the tests. You better laugh or leave… and, perhaps, prepare to blush.
