Routine Management Practices In Bulls

ROUTINE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN DIFFERENT BREEDS OF LIVESTOCK

INTRODUCTION

Routine management practices are usually carried out to maintain the excellent health of the breeds. It involves cleaning facilities such as the sheds, pens and even cleaning the animals with disinfectants.

It also involves feeding the animals and treating them, especially those infected with a disease, and carrying out practices to help contain and control it.

The routine practice was attended daily, i.e., morning and evening. For good health status, growth, and production of the animals to be attained, all these practices must be seriously carried out for respective breeds, as discussed.

1.     Bulls

Hygiene management for bulls

On hygiene in bulls, the shed got cleaned every morning hours and evening hours. The shed was kept cleaned to avoid unnecessary diseases that may be associated with dirty sheds. Spades, brushes, and water helped in cleaning the shed.

Nutrition for bulls

Proper management and nutrition on bulls are essential to ensure cowl. Calf producers maximum reproductive efficiency and genetic improvement of the calf crop. In addition, the herd bull influences the overall herd fertility more than any other single animal. Loss of fertility by a bull can cause substantial loss to a potential calf crop.

Feedstock producers are the primary individuals managing the development program of bulls being sold. For the commercial cow, calf producers, feeding programs usually include feeding purchased bulls from delivery up to the breeding session, and bulls refrained from our breeding season to the next. Bulls are often managed as one group even though there may be significant differences in age, size, and body condition. The bulls were given different types of feeds to maintain their health.

Herd health for bulls

Herd health is the foundation of the veterinary business and training. Veterans need to be experts, and the clients expect excellence.

The role of herd health is to control and eliminate diseases and management inefficiencies that impact animal welfare and milk productivity. The framework of herd health control is risk monitoring and assessment in conjunction with best farming practices. The implementation of herd health control must be in a practical and economically feasible way.

It may include the use of good farming practices that will focus on hygienic practices.

Also, practices that will include prevention of diseases were carried out, such as deworming and dipping.

Parasite control for bulls

To control internal parasites in beef cattle under guidance, we identified different types of parasites that may attack the animals. For instance, pests like roundworms will mainly be found in internal organs. We identified that it lowers the appetite and grazing behavior of the animal. Proper posture management, such as giving the animal suitable feed, may reduce the roundworm infection. We also learned that introducing a new animal herd may introduce the parasites; therefore, administering control chemicals will be necessary.

Hoof health for bulls

The animals’ hoofs require trimming to prevent diseases such as root rots. Bad hoof health is an increasing and expensive problem in intensive dairy productions all over the world. Preventive interventions are essential to obtain a substantial production both from economic and animal welfare aspects. Hoof disorders are possibly prevented by correct management and early detection of affected animals, regular claw trimming, and a clean and dry environment is essential. Investments in the prevention of hoof disorders are therefore profitable for the farmer, and this report could provide a basis for the farmer to prevent hoof problems.

Farm bio-security for bulls

 Farm bio-security involves prominent behavior approaches but has limitations because of the focus on individual farmers’ behaviors and intentions. We then reviewed geographical and rural sociological work that emphasizes social and cultural structures, contexts, and norms that guide disease behavior.

Record and record-keeping for bulls

Records on the performance of the bulls need to be kept well. Record keeping will help to determine whether the farmer incurred only loss or profit. It may also help to determine the amounts of feeds and costs of feeds, the treatment that, maybe, was used.
