Artificial Insemination (AI) allows new genetics to be brought into your herd without the disease risk of introducing live animals or the cost of buying a bull of high genetic merit.
AI is a safe and well-established way of driving genetic improvement within a herd.
AI allows replacement heifers to be bred on farm that are not related to the stock bull, allowing the stock bull to be kept for longer and reducing bull replacement cost.
Using AI on replacement heifers also reduces the risk of bulling injuries.
Castle Farm Vets offers an AI and semen storage service, which we can easily combine with a synchronisation protocol.
