WOLFSVILLE, Md. (AP) - Someone stole $75,000 worth of bull semen from a Frederick County farm, the sheriff’s office says. Eric Fleming said the six small canisters of frozen semen taken from a liquid nitrogen tank represented four to five years of collection work.

He said he had planned to sell it and use the proceeds to expand his breeding herd of shorthorn beef cattle.

“I’m so depressed about this that I probably will get out of the cattle business,” Fleming said Tuesday.

He said he found the semen missing from an outbuilding on his Stonewood Acres farm in northwestern Frederick County Sunday night.

Fleming said the canisters held the semen of 40 to 50 bulls.

Actually, I could’ve sworn I’ve seen/heard this story before.  Maybe something similar, at least.

How large is a $75,000 container of bull semen?  Maybe somebody stole it as a prank not knowing how valueable it is.  I feel sorry for the farmer.

...It doesn’t necessarily mean there was a lot of it.
