The process of semen testing involves inserting the probe of a electroejaculator into the rectum. The bull is stimulated through mild electric stimulation that stimulates sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves to cause ejaculation. The semen is collected and put under the microscope immediatly to see if the swimmers are good. The vet will also measure the testicles to make sure they are large enough and both the same size along with no swelling or hardness. They will finish analyzing the semen at the clinic and then make an evaluation report.
