Thefts Of Valuable Bull Semen Are A Mounting Concern
In the past decade, a rash of jizz heists across the country has cost farmers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Earlier this week, a humble Virginia dairy farmer entered his barn to discover a harrowing scene: Someone had swiped a giant load of bull semen from his inventory, which he uses to artificially inseminate his cows. In total, 10 containers of the precious seed were gone, never to find their way into his prize-winning Holsteins. Fortunately for the farmer, the thieves got away with only $250 of bovine booty, a relatively modest loss. Over the last few years, a rash of jizz heists across the country has cost some dairymen hundreds of thousands of dollars.
