Does increased scrotal circumference measurement in bulls reduce the age of puberty in their daughters?

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Evidence supporting a direct relationship between the scrotal circumference (SC) of bulls and the age at which their female offspring reach puberty is scarce and outdated.
While the results of some studies indicate that increased SC is correlated with a reduction in the age at which female offspring reach puberty, none of these correlations were found to be statistically significant.
However, bull SC measurement is a relatively simple, reliable and repeatable procedure that may still have value as a selection criterion for reducing the age of puberty in female offspring.
