So I recently had a discussion with a cattle rancher who said he is having his bull tested. We had a record cold spell back in January and February (Got down to 0 with 8 inches of snow and stayed below freezing for three days) here in Texas and he said that a number of ranchers are selling their bulls because the extreme cold caused them to go sterile and tests have confirmed it. I'm a little confused. I know some of you keep animals in much colder climates and I'm not aware that this has ever been an issue up north. However, we are not set up down here to house large numbers of livestock in barns over winter and most cattle are allowed to stay in the pasture all winter long. All my goats stayed in the barn during this cold spell and only came out at feeding time. My question is have any of you ever had a buck go sterile due to extreme cold? And if so, did they ever become fertile again? I'm a little nervous as I am due to have my next crop of kids due next month.
