Results from two trials showed that serving capacity (SC) can be successfully evaluated in yearling beef bulls under field conditions and is influenced by sire line (P<.01). Also, providing sexual experience to low SC yearling bulls can improve SC and should be a standard part of the test. Scrotal circumference and breeding soundness examination scores, both traditional measures of bull fertility, were unrelated to SC.
