Bull breeding soundness exams March 25

RICHMOND —

Make sure your bulls are ready to go as we approach the spring breeding season. From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, the Madison County Beef Cattle Association will offer breeding soundness exams on bulls from Madison County beef producers.

Local veterinarian Dr. Ted Cundiff will conduct the exams at Bluegrass Stockyards of Richmond. This service will be offered at a reduced rate of $40 per bull for current Madison County Beef Cattle Association Members or $50 per bull for nonmembers.

If your bull needs BVD testing, deworming or booster vaccinations, this can be done at the same time but at an additional cost.

Bulls should be at least 12 months old. We are limited to 30 bulls. Eligible bulls are those that will be turned out for breeding this spring. Bulls needing exams for cost-share program qualification are not eligible. Give me a call at 623-4072 if you would like to sign up or for more information. Thanks to Dr. Ted Cundiff, Jim Dause and Bluegrass Stockyards of Richmond.

Madison County Beekeepers Association

The newly formed Madison County Beekeepers Association will be meeting 6 to 8:30 p.m. March 24 at the Madison County Cooperative Extension Service Office. This month’s speaker is Jed Davis, treasurer of Bluegrass Beekeepers. He will be speaking on the “joys and trials” of beekeeping.

These meetings are open to anyone interested in beekeeping at any experience level. You do not have to be a resident of Madison County to attend. Bring a dish; the meal will be potluck! Please call 623-4072 if you are planning to attend, so we can set up enough tables and chairs.
