Torch Farm Vets offer a full bull and ram fertility testing service.

Fertility testing can be done routinely ahead of the breeding period in a seasonal breeding pattern, as a pre-purchase check before committing to a sale, or as part of an investigation into poor fertility.

The cost of poor fertility is huge in sheep and beef farms where the lamb or calf is the only product and an infertile or sub-fertile ram or bull can have a catastrophic impact on the profitability for a whole year.

On dairy farms, although milk is the main product, the cost of poor fertility can be just as high due to lost milk, fewer replacement heifers and fewer calves to sell.
