With the upcoming bull buying season upon us, it is a good time to update you of the benefits of purchasing bull insurance.
Bulls are generally a farms biggest single livestock purchase and as such come with a pretty beefy price tag (excuse the pun!!).
Bulls, although generally big and strong, can be quite temperamental and with the massive weight these fellas carry can be quite susceptible to injury, especially those that are being used on our steeper hill country farms. Injuries can stop the bulls from doing the job they were purchased for.
Penis issues from fractures or twists during mating can also be a huge problem and again can have major bearing on calving numbers.
Based on the variety of issues that can go wrong and the monetary value of these bulls I would certainly recommend insuring them for a 12 month period. Farmers insure all other farm assets, so why not this one.
