Semen quality
« on: February 26, 2017, 10:39:57 AM »
Anyone having a better conception rate with some breeders/companies than others. We hit 82% with one breeders semen and under 50 with the other. Not trying to start a fight just wondering. It is going to start to effect the breeders I buy semen from. Thanks for your opinions

AI conception rates are a function of the sum of the parts:
1. Semen quality
2.  Heat detection
3.  Careful handling of semen
4.  Skill in executing the placement of the semen
5.  Fertility and health of the animal

I put quality of semen first because if the quality of the semen is poor no matter how well you perform the other parts, the sum of the parts is going to suffer.
Its simple, we just use the time we have.
