Are your bulls actually siring calves?
Reading Time: < 1 minute

For producers who breed cows in large pastures with multiple bulls, it’s often assumed that all of the bulls will sire roughly the same number of calves. Research shows a surprising variation in the number of calves sired by each bull.
