|Our Semen tank: this is where the frozen sperm is.|
|Our A.I. kit: it has multiple items for the process in it. Kind of like a tool kit.|
|This is how you thaw the sperm. You put water in it, plug in, wait till it gets to a certain temp. Then ready.|
|Cow in the chute waiting.|
We put the cows/heifers in our chute so they don't hurt themselves or us. The whole process is harmless and doesn't usually take very long. ABS ( american breeders service) offers a class that you can go to, where you can learn how to do this. Mr. M and myself have both been. And the cows go right back to their babes when they are all done. We make the whole process easy and calm as possible for the cows. Now putting an embryo in a cow is very similar, but that is a post for another day. Feel free to google or ask questions..
And this the end result when you wait for 9 mths. This particular calf is from the bull. But she's still alive, healthy and beautiful. Happy Wednesday to YOU!
