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
— 2 days 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)

3. They are a relative in trouble;
4. You've won a huge prize and just need to provide verification; or
5. Something else that sounds very real?!

On Tuesday, November 4th we will discuss what to do when someone contacts you by phone or text AND we will go over what we learned about scammers who approach you in person, online and otherwise. Just in time for the holidays! Join us at the Franklin County Senior Center, 602 East Mason Street in Franklinton.

• How will your organization protect its customers from foodborne illnesses?
• Does your organization know the food safety risks that result from cooking large volumes of food?
• Does your organization know how to prevent the food safety risks that result from cooking large volumes of food?
Attend a Cooking for Crowds Workshop and learn what causes foodborne illnesses, how to prevent foodborne illnesses, and how to start practicing good food safety strategies for your next food fundraiser.
