                                           Soundness Evaluation

                                           The bulls listed in this catalogue have met the following parameters that are
                                           required to pass the Tararua Breeding Centre Bull Fertility Evaluation carried out
                                           on behalf of: Kaharau Angus Stud on Thursday 7th May, 2020.
              The Gold standard for this test is to collect the bull by an Artificial Vagina and have the semen assessed by a
              registered morphologist. All bullls that are tested by Totally Vets/Tararua Breeding Centre are tested using this Gold
              Standard.

              Libido      Bulls must demonstrate the ability to mount an "in season" heifer or cow.
              Penile      Each bull's extended penis is examined during mounting for structural soundness, injuries and
              Soundness   abnormalities, including deviations, persistent frenulum’s, adhesions, genital warts and injuries that
                          may have  occurred while out mating.
              Semen       Each bull's ejaculate, which is collected in an artificial vagina, is examined microscopically by a
                          registered  Morphologist for Density, Motility, Morphology and must pass the minimum standards of
                          70% normal at the time of testing.
