Bull Fit is a Critical Component to Breeding Soundness

An evaluation of all angles can help determine a bull’s readiness for breeding soundness.

As soon as you arrive at a bullfighting ring, the first thing to evaluate is structure. A wide-based bull with thick quarters signals internal capacity and muscle dimension.

Structural Correctness

As part of selecting bulls, one of the first considerations should be their structural soundness. A variety of aspects should be evaluated, such as front and hind leg structure as well as overall body appearance.

Structural correctness refers to an animal’s overall skeletal structure and joint angles, which are crucial for its proper function. This includes its head, neck, brisket, shoulders, and front feet/legs – each part can play an essential part in how a bull performs in terms of both performance and calving issues. When considering structural correctness, it’s also worth remembering that poor-performing bulls with poor profiles or structures often struggle more when it comes to performing, often having more calving issues than structurally sound animals would do.

A well-structured shoulder should include a natural slope from brisket to topline and an ideal angle at both elbow joints and shoulder joints. Straight elbow joints create excess wear on these front legs while decreasing their shock-absorbing capacity, and straight front legs may even increase arthritis risk and lead to early breakdown or overgrown outside claws.

As you evaluate the rear leg structure, pay close attention to how a bull walks on level ground. Each hind foot should step into the mark left by its predecessor’s hoof; overstepping or understepping is indicative of structural issues and can exacerbate mating difficulties. Furthermore, hind legs should have right angles at the hip, stifle, and hock joints and 120 degrees between their back edges and the pastern backbone; failure to do this may cause mating difficulties and hinder fertility rates.


Bull riding is a physically taxing sport. Even being slightly overweight can impact how their body balances on a bull, leading to decreased performance on it.

Jestes uses hydraulic-resisted squat machines to build explosive strength. He also practices lateral movement and hip mobility as bullfighters must move quickly through an arena with holes and divots while remaining flexible enough.

After he departed from WWE NXT, James joined Combat Zone Wrestling under the ring name Bull James, an amalgam of his NXT gimmick name and birth name. His debut at CZW came April 1 at Welcome to the Bullfight tapings, where he defeated Sami Callihan before signing a WWE multi-year contract and teaming with Kid Fite at the Slammiversary event, where they began “Bulls on a Budget,” being touted as the cheapest tag team in wrestling.”


Bull riding requires excellent physical fitness. An effective training regimen can boost confidence while helping avoid injuries. The most efficient method for training involves mixing various exercises into your program and having an experienced fitness trainer help design one with you that yields results.

Once Dempsey parted ways with WWE, he immediately made a comeback to independent wrestling under the name “Bull James,” combining his former NXT persona and birth name. He made his first debut appearance at the CZW Welcome To The Combat Zone event on April 1, losing to Sami Callihan.

Bull Fit Pipes was established in 1992 and offers HDPE, PVC, SWR, and Agri pipes, casings, and fittings manufactured using cutting-edge technologies to meet industry standards as one of India’s premier pipe manufacturers.

Feed Efficiency

Feed costs account for much of the expenses associated with raising beef cattle, and increasing feed efficiency is an integral component of breeding programs that seek to maximize profitability while simultaneously minimizing environmental impact. Unfortunately, feed efficiency-related traits vary with environmental conditions, potentially making them subject to genetic x environmental interactions (G x E interactions).[1]

Current GxE evaluations of feed efficiency-related traits rely heavily on phenotypic performance in feeding trials, though Reaction Neutral (RN) models and Continuous Environmental Gating levels (EG levels) may improve reliability by accounting for environmental effects on animal behavior. [2] In order to accurately detect GxE effects on feed efficiency traits, however, Fecal/urinal fluid metabolism analysis must also take place.

On average, cattle need 6 pounds of feed per pound of weight gain; however, this figure can differ significantly depending on their diet. Residual ADG and RFI are two measures often used to evaluate feed efficiency; they compare actual to predicted intake based on weight and desired gain – with lower values being better indicators.

These measures correlate strongly with growth and mature size yet are sensitive to diet quality and sorting, making them less reliable as selection traits than traits such as FCR or RADG. Nonetheless, RFI remains useful when selecting bulls that will perform well in range and cow-calf production systems where rations tend to be less refined than those used in feedlots.
