We have extensively tested our bulls and all tests results have
been clear (M. bovis not detected).
Since September 2018 we have been testing every semen collection for M. bovis and confirming the results before semen straws are dispatched to farmers.
The PCR test is highly sensitive and
will detect if M. bovis is present in the semen.
The daily semen testing complements the additional antibiotic which has been added to the semen diluent in
an effort to further reduce the risk of transmitting M. bovis via semen.
