Police are investigating the theft of about $70,000 worth of bull semen from a farm in southern Minnesota. Mower County Sheriff Terese Amazi says a LeRoy man reported Tuesday that a storage canister with vials of bull semen was taken from his unlocked barn. The theft happened sometime between April 1 and 7. The farmer said the only time he and his hired hand were away from the farm was from 11am to 3:30pm on Easter Sunday. The Austin Daily Herald reports the canister was worth about $500, and the vials of semen were worth from $300 to $1,500 apiece. Police have no suspects. Weird fact: American bull semen is popular in Iran. (Read more semen stories.)
