Full Answer

Using a gomer bull for a process referred to as heat detection allows farmers to separate out cows that are ready to breed more quickly and more successfully. These cows then either breed on the farm, are sent elsewhere for breeding or are artificially inseminated. Any bull can be made into a gomer and be useful in the breeding process, despite being unable to actually breed.

    How do roundworms reproduce?

    A:

    Roundworms reproduce sexually. The female roundworm has an ovary, and she holds eggs in her oviduct until she passes them into her uterus, where they are fertilized by the male. The male produces sperm cells in his testis and stores them in his vas deferens until it is time to reproduce; then he passes them through a spicule to fertilize the female's eggs.
