Artificial Insemination in Beef Cattle
Artificial Insemination in beef cattle offers owners far more options than they had in the past when it comes to producing a superior herd. Not only are they able to mate their cattle with the bulls that they own, but they can also purchase sperm from other owners’ supplies, allowing them to bring different bloodlines into the ones that they currently have. There has been a great demand for superior sperm samples over the last few years, allowing cattle owners to not only capitalize on the breeders that they have but to also keep fewer bulls for stud on their property, which could significantly cut down on their costs.
The use of artificial insemination in beef cattle can go a long way toward ensuring a higher birth rate in an owner’s herd. Taking a little while to check the breeding and fertility rates of the bull being considered is beneficial to knowing what to expect as owner of the impregnated cow. Fertility ratings should be readily available and can help you make a more educated decision when it comes to choosing a sperm donor for your cow. Something else that can make an owner’s artificial insemination experience a little better is putting your cow on a nutrient rich diet and assuring that she is in good body condition. If correct attention is paid, including observing sustained periods of heat in a cow who is being considered for artificial insemination, and ensuring that the semen specimen is properly maintained prior to insemination, a cow can stand a greater chance of conception than one that is attempting to be impregnated naturally.
Another important thing to remember when attempting this is that you should make sure to either use an experience, licensed insemination technician or attend a seminar that will properly train you for the insemination so that your efforts are not wasted. Someone who attempts to inseminate a cow without the proper training stands a much larger chance of failing in the conception, so it is well worth the effort to be well schooled in the process before you begin. Any way that you can find to lower both your stress as well as the cow being impregnated will assist in keeping the cow at a high fertility rate.
Artificial insemination in beef cattle can be a good and ultimately rewarding venture for a cattle owner if the correct attention is paid to the process. Making sure to use sperm collected from a reputable agency and a licensed technician for the actual insemination process will go a long way toward giving you the desired results and adding valuable calves to your herd. Artificial insemination is not only a good investment toward the birth of one calf, but can be advantageous to further enhancing the birth rate in your herd.
