An experiment had been conducted in Merbaun Village, Regency of Kupang for three months. The objective of the experiment was to know characteristics of Bali cattle Bull i.e. age and body weight, body score condition, linier body size (e.g. chest girth, body length, and shoulder height), libido, scrotum circumference, and semen production. 125 of Bali cattle Bull with aged about 2-2,5 years were used in physical measured while nine Bull were choosen randomly to measure libido and semen production. The results of the experiment showed that the average age and body weight were 25.83 ± 0.3719 months and 207.37 ± 1.84 kg, with BCS of 3.97 ± 0.04 (from 5 score), and the chest girth, body length, and shoulder height were 158.27 ± 0.71 cm, 106.87 ± 0.26 cm, and 108.55 ± 0.37 cm, respectively.
