What Does It Cost?
If you have a single animal to INSEMINATE, the total cost is the sum of the following three factors:
1) Farm Call: Fees are calculated with Rathdrum, Idaho as the point of origin.
Local Calls are only $30
For farms located more than than 30 minutes from Rathdrum, the farm call fee can be roughly estimated as follows:
Miles of travel to the farm multiplied by $1.25 per mile (This is a one-way charge.)
2) Cost of Semen:
If you buy semen from us, you can find out how much this will cost by looking in the
If you buy semen elsewhere and ship it to us, there is a small charge for storage and handling.
3) Insemination Fee:
Single animals are (usually) not charged an additional insemination fee, provided that the animals are adequately restrained.
Larger herds will be assessed on an individual basis, so contact us for a quote!
If you are interested in SYNCHRONIZING your animals, contact us for a more accurate quote. We have a variety of programs available to meet your specific needs.
The most common synchronization program is the CO-SYNCH protocol with the CIDR.
Here's how it works:
Day 1: 1st GnRH injection, CIDR (progesterone insert) is put in
Day 7: PGF2a injection, CIDR is removed
Day 7 + (54 - 60 hrs): 2nd GnRH Injection, Insemination
(This program usually requires at least one additional farm call when used in combination with the insemination services listed above.)
Cost: Small herds can expect to be charged roughly $25 - $32 per animal (this includes all hormones, the CIDR, and administration)
BIOPRYN BLOOD PREGNANCY TESTING
The BIOPRYN test is accurate as early as 28 days after insemination. Results are obtained by drawing 2cc of blood from the cow and sending the sample to a BIO TRACKING lab for testing. This is a simple, inexpensive, and accurate method of determining if your cow is pregnant.
Cost: $11.00 for the first animal and $5.00 for each additional animal, plus the farm call
(this charge covers the lab fee, paperwork, shipping, and results).
Large herds please contact us for a quote.
We offer short term storage service for semen that has been special ordered.
