SHAWANO, Wis.—Atop a wooded hill here in the heart of America’s Dairyland, an industry legend was recently laid to rest.

It wasn’t some milk magnate or a famed innovator, but an ornery, 2,700-pound bull named Toystory—a titan of artificial insemination who sired an estimated 500,000 offspring in more than 50 countries.

“He was a dream bull,” said Jan Hessel Bierma, editor in chief of dairy-breeding magazine Holstein International.

In the increasingly high-tech world of cow reproduction, a top bull’s career tends to last just a few years as farmers chase better genetics to boost milk output and animal durability, playing a numbers game not unlike a Major League Baseball manager.

Love this next passage...

With a neck nearly 57 inches around, Toystory was no cuddly show animal. He was blessed with a ravenous libido, typically producing sperm nine times a week, about twice the average of other bulls at Genex. One veterinarian dubbed him “meaner than a snake,” say his handlers, who were grateful some days for the safety fences keeping him penned in.
An unfilled semen straw for Toystory, a record-setting bull owned by Genex Cooperative. His achievements are noted in tiny lettering on the straw.

“The old adage was as long as he was interested in sex, he wasn’t interested in you. But if he lost that other interest, you had to be careful,” said Glen Gilbert, vice president of production for Genex.

Handily beats Wilt's boast.

No wonder he was so ornery. He never got to the cow.

try that with me and see what happens

Even if he did it would be a tough mount.

I want Angela {xRay} brought in on this...

PETA needs to be called in since this is clearly sexual abuse and worse than Abu Grabby.

Also would like to hear what her read is on what is going on with Islam within Germany.
