Artificial Insemination enables large numbers of synchronised ewes to be laparascopically inseminated with the genetics of elite rams. This exciting technology allows the distribution of specially selected rams to be transported large distances and widely disseminated. It is a cost effective way of putting a very high selection pressure on the sire’s genetics of your breeding program.

Will artificial insemination affect the future natural breeding of my sheep?
No. When performed by an experienced technician, it has minimal risk for affecting future breeding.
How many sheep can I program each day?
Up to 400 ewes can be inseminated in one day.
What is the success rate of Artificial Insemination?
With optimal management of the selected ewes and excellent semen quality, pregnancy rates average up to 85% for fresh semen and 70% for frozen.
Will I get more twins with AI?
With careful management of the dose rate of the hormone injection (PMSG), the number of twins can be optimised.
What facilities do I require to run an AI program?
The requirements for AI are a shed with smooth flooring to enable the efficient movement of sheep cradles, simple yards for the catching of ewes. The cradles and all other equipment is supplied by Breedtech.
How many people are required to help on an AI day?
We recommend that 3 able-bodied people are to be supplied by the client to assist in the movement and restraint of the sheep.
