NEW Semen Tank Inventory Book

To keep track of what you have in your tank once you buy semen, take a look at our new Semen Tank Inventory book. We have created the inventory book to be not only a place to keep track of your bull semen inventory but to also be a resource for you. We have included things like a gestation table, instructions for tank care and a place to record your nitrogen fill-ups. There are also instructions on how to handle semen when you’re thawing it. There are also 13 pages for you to keep track of 65 canes.

Have you seen what’s happening at ORIgen?

Have you seen what’s happening at ORIgen?

ORIgen might look a little different than when you saw it last. This past summer and fall, the ORIgen facilities have been getting some beneficial updates. If you where here last winter, you may have noticed all that snow we got! Of course, with all that snow came that much more moisture. Things got a little muddy and that pointed out where we could improve our facilities to ensure that we continue to have the best environment for the bulls and provide the best customer experience possible while you are here visiting us.

When you first drive to ORIgen, you will notice the new asphalt parking lot and improved roads around the office and the barns. This past summer, we added a nice asphalt parking lot for our staff and customers. We have also added a lot more gravel to the roads so that it makes for a nice ride when you come to look at the bulls.












Updates to the bull pens have begun. We widened each pen so the bulls have more room to move around at Yellowstone, one of our resident barns. A concrete apron and bunk also make it possible to present the bulls at their best,  the bulls are now easy to see during a tour and the reach through bunks allows bulls to mimic a grazing behavior rather than eating hay from a feeder hanging on the fence.
























ORIgen is committed to serving our customers with the best bull housing facilities in the business. We are striving for a safe environment for the bulls that is conducive to successful collection efforts that leads to the opportunity for a profitable experience for bull owners. ORIgen owners and staff encourage you to come visit the new facility and tour the exciting bull line up available through the marketing program.
