A prize bull has 'broken' his penis after an overly-enthusiastic amorous encounter
It doesn’t bear thinking about…

A CORK FARMER’S prize bull has apparently ‘broken’ his penis after a fateful romantic encounter.

34-year-old Clonakilty farmer Tommy Moyles told the Farmer’s Journal that the injury was probably sustained by being “overly enthusiastic”.

“I don’t know exactly what happened, but he (the bull) was probably over-enthusiastic in his few days out,” said Moyles.

It’s the first time in 10 years of farming that Moyles has come across such a situation.

Misfortune was heaped upon misery for the unfortunate injured bull as he was promptly sold, but it’s all worked out pretty well for another bull, originally marked for the slaughterhouse, who has since been drafted in to take the original’s place in Moyles’ breeding programme.

A conflict of interest has emerged however – the herd the newly drafted bull has been placed into contains his own mother.

“He  is a pedigree and thankfully the only cow he is related to in the senior group of cows is his own mother so we will move her to one of the other bulls,” said Moyles.

I would have loved to keep the original bull, but the risks were too great.
I had to be very practical.

Sensible thinking.
