Natural service vs. Artificial Insemination


Wow! We sure have seen some high prices paid for commercial bulls this year. The cattle market as a whole is pretty good, but prices for breeding stock seem to be pushing top dollar. With these higher prices, I think it is worth looking at the value of Artificial Insemination (AI). It is a must-use practice for the seedstock guys, but the commercial cattlemen can find value in it too.

This article written by Dr, Les Anderson, UK Beef Extension Specialist, does a great job at putting the pencil to the paper when considering the value of AI vs. Natural service in a commercial operation. Take a look at this economic evaluation... It might just open your eyes!
