A big thankyou to Jenny and Cowboy, I feel much better. I woke up this morning my back was killing me & my shoulder hurt and I was feeling old. I feel much younger after reading your responses. (clapping)Jenny said:I will have you know, Cowboy, that I am just BARELY over 50!
I have been heat detecting cows since I was 12 and A.I.ing since I was 18.
How the time flies....
cbcr said:I am right there with you COWBOY. I took my AI training at Midwest Breeders in Springfield Missouri. Bred lots of cows with the magic wand.
When it came to ampules, I had one dairyman who most of the time bred his own cows, but about once a month he would call me because he had at least 2 cows in heat and wanted to split an ampule between them. Had excellent conception. I remember one time he had 4 cows that we split an ampule on.
I guess al of this tells the age of some of us, but I don't feel that old.
Just goes to show how much the industry has changed!
