when all dairies use this product, the profit on wet heifers will go down and the profit on bulls will go up as they search for replacement bulls.  what the ratio will be will be interesting.

It only gets to about 80% one sex vs the other.  The dairy guys would be more than happy with the amount of bulls they get out of it even if it were even 99%.  They all use the same 10 or so bulls any way.

With ultrasound you can find out if the fertility was good AND the sex of the resulting calves in less than two months. This should be easy to test.

Simple logistics question..  if the straw is 1/2 cc and the vial is 1/2 cc then don't you end up with extra mix that won't go back into the straw?  Or am I missing something?

The vials do not have liquid in them. They have a small amount of a freeze-dried powder. The powder disolves when mixed with the semen. The Volume of liquid does not change.

There was a study posted on several other sites that stated that this product did absolutely no good in determining sex of the calf...in fact, one of their studies  the results were completely opposite of what it was suppose to be.
Think I would either buy sexed semen, or do the hoochie-coo dance.
(I flushed a cow with sexed semen and had excellent results!!)
