Caswell County Center Bull Breeding Soundness Evaluation Clinic Mon Nov 3, 2014 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension 5235 Mountain Hill Road, Milton, NC 27305
— 1 week away

Most cattle producers have questioned whether or not their bulls were breeding all of their cows or heifers. About 20 percent of bulls examined will not be satisfactory breeders. Therefore, the Caswell County Extension Center in conjunction with Caswell County Cattlemen's Association will be conducting the breeding soundness evaluation (BSE) clinic on bulls on Monday, November 3, 2014 starting at 11:00 am to 3:00 p.m. on the Lawrence Bernard Farm located on 5235 Mountain Hill Road in Milton, North Carolina off of Highway 57/62 North of Milton. Dr. Pete Fulper will be the veterinarian performing the BSE clinic again this year.

Breeding soundness evaluation (BSE) is a method that has been developed to assess breeding potential of bulls for natural mating. A complete BSE consists of (1) physical examination, (2) measurement of scrotal size, and (3) semen evaluation for sperm motility (movement) and abnormal morphology (structure and shape).

A complete BSE for a bull will only cost $60.00 versus paying $175.00 for a vet to come to your place and complete a BSE on your bull. Bulls should have not been breeding cattle for at least 30 days prior to a BSE test. Also, bulls need to be held in good trailers before unloading. After the bulls are tested we will load them directly back into their trailers.

If you plan on bringing bull(s), we would appreciate it if you would call the Extension Office at 336-694-4158 to let us know how many bulls and the approximate time of arrival. This way we can better schedule the testing.

Just remember, one bad bull or poor breeder will lose you more than $60.00 in one calving season. Let's have another successful BSE clinic for the twelfth year in a row here in Caswell County. For directions or other information on the clinic, call Joey Knight at 336-694-4158 (office) or at 434-728-5980 (cell)

Henderson County Cooperative Extension is having a workshop this fall to provide farmers in the area with the tools to reduce food safety risks and meet marketing requirements. This two-part Good Agriculture Practices (GAP) Workshop will address how farms of all sizes can achieve USDA GAPs Certification, deliver information on principles of fresh produce safety and on-farm hazard assessment, as well as providing assistance with creating a produce farm safety plan.

The workshop will be held at the Henderson County Extension Office from 9am to 4pm on November 5th & 19th, 2014. Cost for materials and lunch each day will be $50.00. If a Farm is already GAP Certified the first day will meet the update portion of the annual certification. The second day will be writing the food safety plan for the farm of any size.

Portions of the first workshop will take place outside. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a water bottle, and appropriate weather gear. The workshop will take place rain or shine.

Details Workshop Day 1 – The first workshop, Principles of Fresh Produce Safety and Navigating the USDA GAP Audit, will combine classroom and on-farm instruction to provide producers with the tools needed to identify potential food safety concerns as well as strategies to minimize contamination. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance to fulfill a portion of the eligibility requirements to receive possible GAP's Cost Share Assistance.

Details Workshop Day 2 – The second workshop, Fresh Produce Safety Program and Plan Development will provide direct assistance to producers in completing a fresh produce safety plan. Attendees will leave this session with a well-developed working draft of their specific food safety plan, which becomes the framework for an audit, and can be used to demonstration individual farm risk-reduction steps. Completion of the first workshop is a prerequisite and basic computer knowledge is required in order to receive the maximum benefit from this session. Please bring a laptop with wireless capability and word program installed.
