In an effort to continue to provide service to our members and clients, we will continue to maintain regular office hours until further notice.  However, we do ask that you only visit the office if required.

If we are required to close the office for public health reasons, we can assure that we have the ability to work remotely and will do our best to maintain our high level of service.

We are working very closely with our related organizations at ACMA as well as the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic in the Province, region and nationally.

In the meantime, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We thank you for your patience during this time.

Move to Early Sales May Force Producers to Recheck Bulls

The Western Producer
Roy Lewis, DVM
February 20, 2020

“Purebred bull sales in all breeds appear to be getting earlier and earlier, some even happening in December.

This is months before many cattle producers are going to use them in their breeding programs. It sometimes creates difficulty for veterinarians to get the bulls’ semen evaluated ahead of time.

Sellers and buyers of these bulls may need to take this into account when getting them ready for breeding season, or to be delivered.

For some breeders who have moved their sales earlier, we must consider how old the bulls are when tested and the climatic conditions around the time the breeding evaluation was performed.”
