THE TITONKA TOPIC MAY 29,1975 — Pare 3 — YOU CAN'T TELL BY LOOKING! There's no way to look at a bull and tell if he is capable of siring calves, says Gene Rouse, Extension Livestock Specialist. Fertility testing is relatively simple. Using an elcctroejacu- lator you can assimilate an actual breeding situation. Samples of the semen are collected and viewed under a microscope on a slide. The anatomy of the bull is also examined, both his reproductive tract and his physical soundness. Fertility testing is a breeding soundness examination and not just a fertility examination. In Northwest Iowa this spring, a higher percentage than normal of infertile bulls has been found, perhaps as a result of the storm. Bulls showing visable scrotal damage had a higher frequency of infertility than bulls without damage, however, this isn't to say that all bulls with frostbite damage are infertile. The time to test bulls has concerned cattle producers. Testing early may result in some questionable bulls that will need to be retested at a later date; this is particularly true with young bulls. However, testing early allows more time to find replacements if it is necessary, One of the big problems is the supply of the electroejacu- lators in the area. Since your veterinarian may or may not have one, start by checking with him. If he doesn't have an electroejaculator, he can recommend a clinic that can service you. Fertility testing bulls is just like testing seed corn, for germination and I'm sure not many of you will plant com this spring without a germination test, concludes Rouse, Extension Livestock Specialist. Lets Tak Gardening If you have a small garden and limited space, but would like to grow squashes, than perhaps some of the summer squashes or a bush winter squash would appeal to you. Summer squashes include zucchinis, straightneck, and crookneck yellow squashes, and the Pattipans. All of these, being bush types, require very little space. If you like winter squash that you can store over winter and use at any time, then Gold Nugget may be to your liking. This also is a bush type that produces four to seven fruits that can remain in the garden until just before the frost. If you store these in a fairly warm storage of around 55-60 degrees, they will keep all winter. The quality is excellent, and some gardeners feel that this is the best winter squash available.
