A sure way to lose a calf crop is to have an infertile bull or a bull with a
structural defect that would prevent breeding. By having your bull tested, it
lessens the chances of your bull not being able to settle cows. To have your bull
or bulls tested simply call the UT E xtension Office at 635-9551 by Monday,
November 7th with number of bulls being tested from your farm. Bring all
bulls to Mr. Larry McCoy's Farm listed above. We will begin around 9:00
