Risk of exposure or contamination
Trich infections are devastating for cattle producers
One bull can infect a large portion of the herd. Testing bulls for Trich before and after breeding season protects your herd and investment. Even with a closed herd, and no community pastures, there is still risk of Trichomoniasis if infected cow or bull from a neighboring herd comes through the fence. Trichomoniasis is difficult to eradicate. The costs of a trich-infected bull can be staggering; infected cows experience reproductive failure, lower calving frequency, and more — infected bulls need to be destroyed as they do not exhibit symptoms. Colorado State University published an analysis of Trichomoniasis Prevention: the Cost per Cow to Prevent
