Uno Mas Question
« on: August 29, 2017, 01:35:36 PM »
Anyone have any luck breeding to him with the sexed semen? I know there is decreased conception, but am I looking at 50% at best? $50 a straw sounds reasonable

I used 1 straw this past spring on a big i67 that did a lot of winning.  I even dropped the straw before loading, picked back up and she stuck, no pasture exposure.

We've used it and got the same conception rate as conventional, but from what I have gathered in talking to most guys who have used conventional semen out of him there have been very few bull calves born.  Sexed through Select Sires is also 4 mil and only $50.
Life is tuff, but it is tougher when you are stupid.

If sexed is 4 mil, what is a typical normal dose on any conventional?

Usually 2 to 3 mil, some is 5, but is usually a lot more expensive.

So $50 is a pretty good deal for it?

I think so. Also like their Angus bull Conversation. Have our Who da Man donor stuck to him using their sexed semen. It is also $50

I like the idea of Uno Mas so I could possibly register the heifers

I had Select Sires do everything and ended up with 50% conception with sexed semen on heifers.With conventional we usually get 70+% on natural heat detection if using high quality semen.It seems if we time breed 60% seems to be the number.Condition of cows also makes a difference plus number of days since calving as anything much less than 60days is marginal to get them moved up.
