Consideration 4 – Post-joining

Consideration 4 – Post-joiningBanner

As your Angus bulls will work hard for you during the joining period, it is likely they will come out from the cows in reduced body condition, particularly in their first mating season. To best help your bulls recover and prepare for the next joining;

1.    Remove bulls from the breeding herd to continue to fully acclimatise and regain body condition,

2.    Drench all bulls and provide booster vaccinations,

3.    Provide adequate feed and water so they regain their body condition,

4.    Undertake bull breeding soundness evaluation with your cattle veterinarian (prior to the next joining season).
