Police in Turlock, CA which is right outside of Modesto in central California are looking for $50,000 worth of bull semen stolen off of a work truck Sunday night. The semen is stored in tanks with liquid nitrogen to keep it frozen at a chilly -350 degrees below zero.
WHY IS BULL SEMEN WORTH $50K? I thought the same thing. Apparently, this is some really good bull semen. Farm owner John Azevedo said:
The genetics that these bulls have in them is out of the top 1 percent of the world population.
And one of the bulls whose semen was stolen off of the truck is ranked as the number five bull in the world!
The 3,500 units stolen could have been used to impregnate up to 1,000 cows. Police in Turlock are investigating, and recycling centers in the area have been notified to keep a lookout for the tanks.
