Okay this is my thing and I don't have a horse in this race BUT.....Ohio State Vet Hospital (which we are all fairly close to here in Ohio where this bull was raised) will pull an undescended testicle down for $150-200. I think that's pretty cheap. If the other nut was up inside why not spend the few dollars to have it put down where it belongs? Goodluck to the new buyer I guess.

Oh Breeder, I hope you were being sacastic!

Cryptorchidism in North American cattle: breed predisposition and clinical findings.
St Jean G, Gaughan EM, Constable PD.
SourceDepartment of Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506-5606, USA.

Abstract
The authors analyzed data collected over 26 years from 143 cryptorchid bulls admitted to 23 North American veterinary schools. Breed was found to be a risk factor. The medical records of 41 cryptorchid cattle were also obtained, and the physical examination findings, method of diagnosis, and surgical management were recorded. Polled Hereford and Shorthorn cattle were at significantly greater risk for cryptorchidism; however, polled cattle were not at an increased risk for cryptorchidism. Cryptorchidism was most commonly diagnosed by external palpation of the superficial inguinal rings and by palpation per rectum. Unilateral cryptorchidism appears to be more common than bilateral cryptorchidism. The incidence of cryptorchidism was 69% for the left testis and 31% for the right testis. Sixty-six percent of the retained testes were located in the inguinal canal. Cryptorchidectomy was performed through an inguinal, paramedian or flank approach in 26 bulls. Cryptorchidism appears to be rare in bovine bulls admitted to North American veterinary schools, with 1.7 cases per 1,000 bull admissions. We suggest that cryptorchidism be considered an inherited trait in the Shorthorn and Polled Hereford breeds.



Long story short....cut them off


few years back a guy had an awesome steer prospect. Only problem technically he wasn't a steer "yet" he had one testicle that was undescended. I could have had all the work done at OSU in and out in a day for very little money. Just seems so simple to me ???

Sounds like we need a genetic test for this one.  I agree any 1-nut bull should quickly become a steer, but I guess it is a bit difficult to get that nut that hasn't descended...
